Place based approaches to net zero

The cities and regions in which we live, work and play are as unique and diverse as we are as individuals – no one is the same.  While we are all working towards a common global goal of positive climate action, how that is delivered from place-to-place needs to be responsive to the specific context, strengths and vulnerabilities of those communities – particularly if we want to leave a lasting positive legacy.

Infrastructure has a leading role to play in delivering climate action. Infrastructure enables up to 70 per cent of emissions through the way we plan, design, build and use infrastructure assets.  Together with our partners Mott MacDonald, we have reached beyond and challenged the constructs. A Place-Based Approach to Net Zero is shared with a spirit of collaboration to help enable and accelerate positive climate action.  This is a call-to-action for the infrastructure sector to lead by example, thinking globally, acting locally in the cities and regions which we live, work and play.
