The early morning of Wednesday 4th December started with a breakfast and panel talk hosted in our Bennetts London office. Working and organised in collaboration with the Knowledge Quarter, the discussion was led by four speakers (Paul Jaffe - British Land, Lucy Hamnett - Carbon Credentials, Ben Hopkins, Peter Fisher Bennetts Associates) who all expanded on the topic of net zero carbon and organisational footprints in a climate emergency.
Many organisations across the world have declared a climate emergency, while a raft of governments and authorities have committed to a net zero carbon targets.
But what does this mean in practice? How does an organisation understand its carbon footprint? And what does net zero carbon mean?
Each speaker spoke passionately to a diverse Knowledge Quarter audience who gave insightful presentations of case studies examples, and sharing company data and initiatives. Ben Hopkins spoke specifically about the carbon footprint in 2016 vs 2018 here at Bennetts Associates and going beyond science based targets towards zero carbon.
Overall topics covered include:
‐ Science Based Targets, which relate an organisation’s carbon footprint to the Paris commitments
‐ Organisational carbon footprints
‐ Emerging net zero carbon policies in London relating to buildings
