UK100, the network of local government leaders, has set out its events schedule for 2022 as its members look to deliver on their net zero ambitions.
The organisation said it would build on its Power Shift report, with members shifting focus from declaration to delivery.
It said: “Our Local Power In Action and Climate Leadership Academy projects will support that delivery, while our members will start to report their emission reductions.
“Alongside our annual summit in the summer, we’ll also be holding quarterly knowledge sharing events and regular meetings for the APPGs on Sustainable Finance and Air Pollution.
“Only with local and central government working side by side can the economic benefits of meeting Net Zero become reality.”
Highlights from members in 2021 include 93 local authorities comitting to meet Net Zero at least five years earlier than the UK's 2050 target.
Another 49 UK100 members signed up to the UNFCCC Race To Zero campaign.
At UK100's International Net Zero Local Leadership Summit & Conference in July, local leaders from across the UK made the case for greater partnership with the UK government in the push to net zero.
Three months later, the Government drew on this recommendation in its Net Zero Strategy.
