Good Homes Alliance Chair Lynne Sullivan OBE has joined the Editorial Board of unlocknetzero.co.uk, a new knowledge portal designed to inform, educate, and connect people and organisations involved in moving to a net zero emissions future.
In June 2019, the UK Government amended its Climate Change Act to become the first major economy in the world to make a legally binding commitment to net zero emissions by 2050. To achieve this, disruptive and large-scale change will be required across all sectors and industries.
unlocknetzero.co.uk seeks to educate its audience on the technologies, infrastructure and behaviour change required to deliver net zero. The site is focused on helping to identify and explain how the country transitions to a net zero future in practical terms. The intention is to create sharp insight to generate value and knowledge.
An editorial board has been established for unlocknetzero.co.uk to advise on the direction of content on the site and is made up of senior executives from across government agencies, departments and private and public organisations, including the Climate Change Committee, Homes England, MHCLG and Green Finance Institute.
Commenting on joining the Editorial Board for unlocknetzero.co.uk, Lynne Sullivan OBE said:
“Our immediate response to COVID-19 aside, how we tackle climate change is the biggest challenge we face. As a country we have a clear goal to be net zero by 2050. Change will happen quickly, indeed we are seeing it happen already, so it is important that people and organisations are informed in the why and how of the transition to net zero. I am looking forward to working with my fellow editorial board members to contribute to a site that’s intention is to inform and educate to ensure the decisions made in the transition are made on the best evidence.”
unlocknetzero.co.uk has been launched by Ocean Media Group, the publisher, data provider and event organiser together with Social, the integrated communications agency. The launch of the site of the site has been supported by Adecoe, AICO, Baily Garner, Places for People and Wondrwall.
