Net Zero

KTN has over 25 projects working on Net Zero solutions from decarbonisation to circular economy and sustainable innovation. Get in touch with one of our experts, join one of our communities or sign up to our mailing list to find out how we can help you deliver a Net Zero future for the UK.

To achieve Net Zero, we must negate the number of greenhouse gases generated through human activity. KTN is helping the UK achieve its 2050 Net Zero target by supporting innovative businesses to decarbonise, reduce waste, increase energy efficiency, and build resilient, low carbon supply chains.

KTN can introduce you to established industry to facilitate the adoption of Net Zero solutions across sectors. Our Innovation Exchange programme connects those with Net Zero challenges to the innovators already working on the solutions.

If you’re looking to collaborate on a project to accelerate the creation and adoption of a Net Zero solution, tap into KTN’s Innovation Network communities. We have Innovation Networks in Cross-Sector Battery Systems, Hydrogen Economy and the Decarbonisation of Ports and Harbours that bring together innovators through events and networking. Our network members and experts also provide valuable thought leadership and industry insight.

KTN’s experts can also provide information on government funding opportunities and the investment community. Find a list of current funding competitions here.
