"Solutions you can apply to your business today to cut costs, lower emissions and save energy"
Over two days, this year's Big Zero Show will showcase innovation, technology and inspirational speakers to help businesses, big or small cut their emissions.

Workshops, expert speakers, case studies and exhibitions. Plus, networking with 1500 peers and potential customers. In addition, day two will address the skills shortage and help both new starters and those thinking of a career change, explore the opportunities of the low carbon economy. Whether you're a recent graduate or an experienced professional looking to reskill, we've got inspiring talks, sector showcases and networking opportunities to help you find your place in this evolving industry.


  • Rt Hon Chris Skidmore will be joining us as our keynote speaker
  • Net Zero Index content stream, featuring presentations highlighting Net Zero Solutions
