About ZCB

Climate science states that current emission reduction targets will not keep us from what is now considered to be 'extremely dangerous' climate change. If we are to leave a safe and habitable climate for our children and future generations, we need to reduce our emissions to zero as soon as possible.

The Zero Carbon Britain project was formed at the Centre for Alternative Technology in 2006 as a direct response to this challenge, and has researched and published three reports on rapid decarbonisation.

The research demonstrates that we can live in a modern society with net zero emissions. Using only currently available technology, we can make the transition within the necessary timeframe. We can rise to the challenge of climate change, and create a positive future.

By producing a robust and technically feasible scenario, the project aims to increase awareness and understanding of the above across society, and to support and encourage the necessary action to achieve a positive zero carbon future.

Find out more about the latest report, and how you can use it to support your efforts towards a positive future.
