This training seeks to build a foundation of principles, language and ideas for the decarbonisation journey to net zero carbon.

The session introduces some of the language of climate change and decarbonisation and helps understand the differences between shorter term policy objectives around 2030 and the longer term net zero objectives towards 2050. It includes:

  •  What is Net Zero Carbon?
  • Strategic approaches to 2030 and 2050
  • Risks and opportunity
  • Business planning for decarbonisation
  • Points of alignment and strategic conflict

The training builds on the first session (although it is not a pre-requisite to attend both sessions) and seeks to develop a foundation of principles, language and ideas for the decarbonisation journey to net zero carbon.

The session introduces the 2050 goal and some of the language of climate change and decarbonisation. This will help you understand the differences between shorter term policy objectives around 2030 and the longer term net zero objectives towards 2050.

It will set out the core principles of building a carbon inventory to understand impact and plan carbon reduction. We will re-visit the current policy landscape and the session will compare and contrast the 2030 and 2050 challenges.

The session introduces some of the present tools in the toolkit for housing providers to understand and plan their decarbonisation strategies and some of the innovative thinking necessary to look ahead to 2050. The session will close with some consideration of where decarbonisation fits strategically and discusses some of the early areas of assurance that can be established. There will be time for questions and answers.
