News and Insight - Building a NetZero Tech Community in Canary Wharf – Level39

Back

Climate change didn’t happen overnight, so why is net zero suddenly at the top of the corporate agenda? It’s no surprise that in the run up to COP26 in November last year, there was a magnified focus on companies reducing their carbon emissions, and 2021 saw the rise of initiatives to support businesses of all sizes in pledging and reaching their net zero carbon goals. As a subsidiary of Canary Wharf Group, the largest sustainable developer in the UK, our agenda at Level39 is very much aligned to sustainability and working closely with our clients to support their (and our) net zero pathway. 

Last year, we joined Tech Zero, an initiative launched by Tech Nation, a network designed to help founders and entrepreneurs scale their companies to positively transform societies and economies. At a high level, Tech Zero is a coalition of tech companies, big and small, committing to NetZero by 2050. So far, there are 270 companies who have joined Tech Zero, and Level39, being one of them, offers support as an Ecosystem Partner to help amplify the Tech Zero mission, by sharing information on how to get involved, and emphasising why committing to Net Zero is important for tech companies of all sizes. 

But what if you don’t know where to begin in reducing carbon emissions, and you don’t know how to even measure what you’re already emitting? That’s where the Tech Zero community can help. 

What’s great about Tech Zero is that they’re developing a tool kit and resource hub to support signatories in their journey to Net Zero Carbon. Most recently I joined a virtual discussion on how to work with your suppliers to reduce your scope 3 emissions. If you’d like to have a listen, you can find the recording on the Tech Zero YouTube channel (link – Bring your suppliers on your net zero journey – YouTube)

I’m excited to announce that we’re also hosting a Tech Zero networking event at Level39 on the 25th May and invite anyone to join that’s interested in the initiative, learning from those who have started their Net Zero journey and networking with fellow tech firms interested in creating a greener and more sustainable future. Registration is here – Tech Zero: Networking and Net Zero – Level39.
