Details

Join us at this in person networking event to learn more about the Net Zero Tracker which aims to increase transparency and accountability of net zero targets pledged by nations, states and regions, cities and companies. Built on collaboration and people power, the Net Zero Tracker relies on a team of student, and now alumni, volunteers to collect publicly available data that indicates the integrity of these targets.

In addition to learning how Oxford Net Zero are helping businesses and policymakers achieve their net zero goals, hear from Client Earth, one of the world's most ambitious environmental organisations, about how they are using the law to hold companies to account. Our discussion will cover the topics of net zero targets and their integrity; fossil fuel removal; deforestation and how nature links to net zero.

You'll have the chance to put your questions to the panel, network with alumni over drinks and pizza, and hopefully sign up as a Net Zero Tracker volunteer!

If you are interested in a career in sustainability, this event is a great opportunity to learn about the part that you can play as an individual and an employee in the countdown to net zero, and how volunteering can boost your net zero literacy.

Tickets: £20

Speakers:

Sam Hunter Jones, Energy Systems Lead (Europe), Client Earth
John Lang, Net Zero Tracker Lead, Energy & Climate Intelligence Unit
Alexis McGivern, Net Zero Standards Manager, Oxford Net Zero
Steve Smith, Executive Director, Oxford Net Zero and CO2RE

Post-event drinks: join members of the local alumni group Oxford10 at Serata Hall (5 minutes walk from The Trampery) to carry on the conversation over cocktails after the event.
