BECBC Net Zero Group (August 2021)

The BECBC Net Zero group looks at the sustainable energy market, both to support members to help their businesses reduce their energy overheads and carbon footprint, and to help them break into a booming clean energy sector.

In the year of COP26, with sustainability starting to appear on tenders and becoming more important to our customers, learning from experience will help BECBC members lead the way. In this meeting Simon Sjenitzer shares Tetra Tech's experience.

Tetra Tech UK’s journey to Net Zero – sharing our learning from policy announcement, through the Board Room and into action. A brief presentation of our journey, the challenges, hurdles and process steps in order to declare ourselves

Net Zero carbon. We are still on the journey, and the hard part of developing a strategy with science based targets is yet to come!

Benchmarking net zero tool – trying to support and encourage supply chain activity for mutual benefit. In conjunction with Curzon Management Consultants we have developed a simple to complete online questionnaire that provides the user with a GDPR compliant benchmarking comparator of their own actions being take towards net zero. Benchmarking only becomes meaningful when a number of respondents have competed it, so I would like to test it on sub-group members first.
