Well everyone said it couldn’t be done. But we did it with your help!

Festival Net Zero was an amazing success as the first large scale energy sector event during the pandemic. Social distancing didn’t stop us. Masks didn’t silence us. The virus hasn’t beaten us.

Our thanks to the hundreds who came to the Ricoh area in person and to the more than 600+ that joined us online during our inaugural festival. It was great to produce a live event despite all the restrictions and it couldn’t have been done without our wonderful supportive partners and sponsors.

We gave those who came the first copies of the Big Zero report produced with our partners which discusses subjects fundamental to our net zero ambitions. Those of you who were not there can download a version here.

Our Big Zero debates were a mix of live and remote speakers and we thank you for the interaction and questions asked by both the live and virtual audience. And our Little Zero content zone –with more sessions to help insire you was also a phenomenal hit.

But perhaps the best moment of the day was the inspiring speech by ‘net zero business owner,’ Alan Rance explaining how he transformed his life, his company and his staff as he took his business to net zero.

Finally we ended the day with Avenue the young band who are destined for big things.

You can see all the content from the event on the platform over the next few days. An amazing effort by our team but more importantly an amazing effort by all of you who came.

Thank you and let’s show we can keep on the path to net zero come what may! We will see you next year hopefully mask free!
