Roadmap to Net Zero

2021 to 2030 is a critical moment in time.

What we do in this period will almost certainly determine the course for humanity and our planet. Collaborative and decisive action is required to empower change at scale and contribute to a brighter future. A future of unprecedented business opportunities – finding new growth and talent, cost reductions and building greater resilience.

This is why the Lincoln Climate Commission are proudly hosting a stop on the Zero Carbon Tour, a series of events showcasing the amazing efforts being undertaken – both locally and globally – to aid in the transition to a net zero carbon economy.

Join this FREE event on the 27 September and make the first steps to a more sustainable future.

On the day, you’ll see the UK’s first 100% electric coach, affectionately named the ‘Carbon Battle Bus’, find out more about the UN-backed Race to Zero campaign and hear Carbon Stories and discussions with local people, organisations and community groups.
