Cornwall Insight and the UK law firm Shoosmiths have published a report on net zero strategies for businesses. With an increasing number of businesses looking to align themselves with the UK government’s net zero by 2050 ambition, companies are looking to reduce their emissions and become sustainable organisations. Pressures from consumers and investors are leading many companies to set more aggressive targets for net zero implementation before 2050, with some targeting this decade. For many businesses, setting a target is the easy part while achieving net zero creates complexity across sectors, technologies and various business structures. There is no one-size fits all approach for businesses to reach net zero as companies need to look at their own specific circumstances—their energy use and requirements and how that might be reduced, how they source that energy and what options they may have for clean energy generation or enabling such generation.

In this podcast, Cornwall Insight’s Lead Research Analyst, Kate Hill, came together with James Wood-Robertson, Partner at the UK law firm Shoosmiths LLP to consider the key messages of the report. This includes potential routes to decarbonisation that businesses have at their disposal.
