Successfully implementing net zero: a how-to guide for UK companies

May 14, 2020

11:00 am

- 12:00 pm

There are ever-growing pressures facing organisations to respond to the climate emergency and many are making commitments to achieve net zero emissions, but what does this look like in reality and what, specifically, does your business need to consider?


Ricardo’s carbon management experts are delivering change for clients across many sectors of the economy. We are working with executive boards to develop their own net zero strategies, compiling the business case for carbon mitigation measures and implementing solutions that ultimately contribute to the UK’s net zero targets. These projects are taking advantage of the opportunities presented by the net zero agenda and allowing organisations to demonstrate their contribution to addressing the climate emergency.


About this webinar

In this third of our three free webinars, our experts will look at some of the challenges in delivering a 30-year strategy for net zero against a backdrop of 1-5 year investment cycles, a changing governance structure and the steps you may need to take to gather and fully communicate the metrics of success to support the ongoing implementation of your net zero strategy.


Who should attend?

  • Sustainability and environmental managers.
  • Finance directors.
  • Managing directors.
  • Chief executive officers.

The ISIS Neutron and Muon Source

May 14, 2020

2:00 pm

The ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is one of the two large particle accelerators at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Join us for an introductory talk about how ISIS works and some of the amazing science that takes place here, and a virtual tour of the facility – including going into areas where most people don’t get to go! ISIS acts like a giant microscope, but instead of using light, it uses neutrons and muons to investigate the atomic and molecular properties of a huge range of different materials – from antibiotic resistance to aircraft wings, and investigating polar bear hair to make more environmentally friendly paint.

Harwell connect logo 03 300x245 - Connect Harwell: COVID-19

Join us for our first online Connect Harwell networking event: COVID-19 connecting resources on Friday 15 May from 15:00 – 16:00 via Zoom webinar. There will be plenty of time for Q&A and collaboration discussions via the webinar chat rooms, so pop the kettle on, slice a piece of your favourite home bake and join us to explore how the collective efforts here at Harwell may be able to assist in supporting the challenges faced during, and in the aftermath of, COVID-19.

Many Harwell Campus organisations are already contributing to the COVID-19 effort in a number of different ways. Hopefully we can build further on this by understanding if there are additional ways in which we could adapt products or skill-sets to address the current and future pandemics. There could be potential new opportunities arising for the campus to work together or with external organisations.

Usually hosted by different campus organisations, Connect Harwell’s bi-monthly events are open to all campus organisations and sectors, providing a central forum to network with colleagues from the 200+ companies and facilities spread across the site, our May event is going virtual to adhere to current social distancing restrictions.

If you cannot join us online in May, please invite colleagues to sign up in your place and also feel free to invite any contacts you may have from other campus-located organisations that you work with. We look forward to welcoming you and/or your colleagues to the Connect Harwell online event.

The event is brought to you by Harwell Campus and STFC in partnership.

From citizen science to genetics: how can you help us tackle the resistance of tuberculosis to antibiotics? (ages 12+)

May 15, 2020

6:00 pm

Tuberculosis is a disease that has afflicted humans for thousands of years and kills more people worldwide than any other infectious disease. In this talk Philip will explain how scientists have reduced the time it takes for doctors in the UK to find out which antibiotics will work by examining the genetic code of each case of tuberculosis (TB). To make this even more accurate, over 20,000 samples of TB will have been collected by the end of 2020 and you can help us analyse all this data!
