The Sustainable Business Series campaign aims to share best practice, guidance and knowledge to improve business know-how and progression to net zero.

In January this year, the Government released its Net Zero Review, which set out the historic opportunity offered by Net Zero. Indeed, the review, by former Energy Minister Chris Skidmore, made clear that the UK could do more to achieve the economic benefits associated with green growth. The main recommendations highlighted by the review include:

  • Using Infrastructure to unlock Net Zero
  • Creating sustainable governance structures for Net Zero
  • Backing businesses to go green
  • Catalysing local action
  • Increasing transparency and engaging people
  • Delivering cleaner and greener homes
  • Capitalising on international leadership
  • Setting the UK up for 2050 and beyond 

This conference will help businesses understand their role in progressing to net zero, as well as the opportunities and challenges that will come from the transition. The conference will look to support businesses on their net zero journey at a time when many are struggling.


  • Business owners, managers and leaders who are interested in understanding their company’s role in net zero.
  • Professionals that want to build a business case for sustainability.


  • Discover how businesses, of different sizes and sectors, have embraced their role in achieving Net Zero.
  • Gain perspectives from regional and national business leaders on why net zero is important and how the region’s business community is rising to the net zero challenge.
  • Understand the future of sustainable transportation and the role of business in creating a sustainable Birmingham.
  • Take away practical tips on how to lead the transition to Net Zero.
