At Innovate UK Business Connect, we are helping to empower organisations in their journey to Net Zero.
Introduction to Net Zero
The UK has committed to an ambitious Net Zero target by 2050. To help realise these goals, Innovate UK Business Connect is delivering a range of Net Zero solutions that will have an impact on the large-scale change the planet needs.
Innovate UK Business Connect has developed a vision for where we need to be in 15 years to ensure our Net Zero target for 2050 is achievable. Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing our planet today, so our future must be sustainable.
At Innovate UK Business Connect we involve and inspire in a variety of key Net Zero stakeholders to address systemic barriers to meaningful adoption and accelerate the deployment of technologies and capabilities across diverse industry sectors. We also invest in businesses with Net Zero technologies so that they can scale them faster as we are supporting the UK to become the fastest transitioning economy to Net Zero.
Sustainable innovation that produces environmental and economic impacts is essential, and therefore we are creating initiatives and delivering programmes to support businesses to decarbonise, reduce waste, increase energy efficiency, and build resilient, low carbon supply chains.
