Zemo 20th Anniversary Conference 15 June 2023

The Zemo 20th Anniversary Conference 2023 – Zemo 20:ZERO – will focus on the challenges ahead on the road to Net Zero – but it will also review progress made over twenty years.

The event will bring together key stakeholders involved in the policy process at different levels, to demonstrate the importance of working collaboratively and cross-party on this critical agenda, and to show how the prescriptions for tackling climate change and air quality are inextricably linked.

With leading speakers, interactive exhibitions and great networking opportunities all followed by a celebratory reception – with some fun and surprises lined up – this event is not to be missed!
