This year’s Decarbonisation Summit takes place over the next two days (7/8 June) at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, a prestigious venue in one of the most prolific cities in the UK’s journey to net-zero. 

The Decarbonisation Summit brings together speakers from a wide range of sectors to share their ideas, visions and breakthroughs via in-person and online panels. The event builds a network of pioneers who will be invaluable on the road to net zero.

From politicians and CEOs, to graduate students and climate activists, everyone has a part to play in decarbonisation. The 2022 summit is going to bring these figures together to make a real difference.
