Net Zero

The UK has committed to an ambitious Net Zero target by 2050.  To help realise these goals, KTN is delivering a range of Net Zero solutions that will have an impact on the large-scale change the planet needs.

Our future has to be sustainable, our tomorrow very different from our today.  We all have a part to play and time is running out.  Net Zero is a fundamental priority for KTN and you can see evidence of it in much of what we do.

Our experts are working to connect Net Zero innovators with industry to accelerate the adoption of technologies and capabilities across diverse industry sectors.  This needs to be a systemic change: we are working with our networks on initiatives to support businesses to decarbonise, reduce waste, increase energy efficiency and build resilient, low carbon supply chains.

Sustainable innovation that produces environmental and economic impacts is essential.  From our Innovation Exchange programme connecting those like the British Antarctic Survey with Net Zero challenges to the innovators already working on the solutions, to our Innovation Network communities in Cross-Sector Battery SystemsHydrogen Economy and the Decarbonisation of Ports and Harbours, KTN is committed to providing expertise, connections, cross-sector insights and opportunities for businesses.

Check out some of our projects on this page and you’ll also find links to relevant funding competitions.
