Event recap: exploring cutting-edge Net Zero solutions at Innovation Zero

Earlier this month, London hosted Innovation Zero, the UK’s top sustainability and Net Zero conference. At Amber, we are keen to stay on top of industry knowledge and policy updates, so we sent two members of the team, Paddy O’Clery (Business Development Director) and Sophie Mullins (Product Lead), to connect with industry peers and learn about the latest shifts shaping the Net Zero landscape.

Diving into Innovation Zero

The event showcased a diverse line-up of businesses and sustainability leaders, demonstrating the opportunity to drive sustainable change through forward-thinking Net Zero solutions.

This year, Innovation Zero emphasised shaping a resilient future, highlighting advancements in technology, potential policy changes, and innovative solutions for emission reduction. The event highlighted that there is a very real need to communicate the opportunities available in the Net Zero space as well as the challenges ahead in order to bring us together to overcome them.

Innovation Zero offered a valuable opportunity to engage with experts in climate change mitigation and see what amazing efforts are in the works to fill the skills gap. However, the event did demonstrate that, while we are making good progress, there is still plenty to do.

Top 5 event highlights

Clear communication is key: It became incredibly clear that those of us committed to achieving Net Zero need to improve how we communicate opportunities and challenges within the industry to those outside of the Net Zero space.

Potential in skill development: The strides which have been taken towards addressing the skills gap is inspiring confidence in the commitment to Net Zero action. However, it still remains that a collective call to action and further investment are still necessary.

The power of policy certainty: It was clear that stable policies will play a crucial role in enabling more widespread building improvements.

Retrofitting for affordability: Breaking down retrofitting endeavours into more manageable segments could improve affordability and effectiveness. That is if it is delivered correctly.

Setting the example: It was clear that we have much to celebrate and learn from pioneering buildings and the role they will play in inspiring practical change.
