UK100 sets out plan of action for 2022

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.

Smart Transport National Conference 2023

The UK’s largest two-day conference for senior private and public sector transport leaders and policymakers to work together to transform the UK’s transport network and achieve net zero will take place on 21 & 22 November 2023, The Eastside Rooms, Birmingham.

The high-level conference will bring together senior transport leaders who help shape transport policy and deliver its infrastructure.

It aims to promote best in class initiatives from the private and public sector and bring people together through networking, knowledge transfer and discussion and is seen as UK's largest, trusted and most credible transport conference to facilitate public and private sector collaboration.

The agenda will deliver a speaker faculty of 80+ expert speakers, including senior transport politicians, from the UK and beyond. And we expect an audience of 300+ delegates to attend. 

Speakers come from authorities and organisations such as: The Department for Transport, England’s Economic Heartland, Birmingham City Council, Transport for West Midlands, Midlands Connect, TIER Mobility, CoMoUK, Lambeth Council, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, Enterprise Holdings, FedEx, Worldline and Cornwall Council.
