Zero Carbon Britain - events and training
Zero Carbon Britain research builds on the CAT’s 45 years of experience of developing and sharing positive solutions to help tackle big environmental challenges.
Our work clearly demonstrates that we already have the tools and technology needed to efficiently power the UK with 100% renewable energy, to feed ourselves sustainably, and to play our part in leaving a safe and habitable world for future generations.
Our latest report, Zero Carbon Britain: Rising to the Climate Emergency, incorporates work from the last 12 years of Zero Carbon Britain research and the latest scientific and technological developments.
