The Net Zero Champion Award, sponsored by Airbus, recognised an organisation that is going above and beyond to champion Net Zero. The organisation must have been able to demonstrate it has put in place a tangible, significant and verifiable transformation plan to achieve Net Zero.

We looked for organisations which showed ambition by: setting bold targets and timelines, joining industry leading coalitions and pledges, actively involving and influencing their supply chain and other stakeholders, empowering their teams to enable change from the bottom-up, etc.  The organisation must have been able to provide evidence that carbon neutrality is embedded in its company culture and business model.


Pioneer and world leader in sustainability, Schneider Electric impressed the jury which included the Chair of the Climate Change Committee Lord Deben, with the scope of its initiatives and its work to reduce carbon emissions throughout its supply chain.

"Climate change is the greatest challenge of our generation. At Airbus, our ambition is to lead the decarbonisation of aerospace. As well as our commitment to key industry-wide net zero targets we plan to bring the world’s first zero-emission commercial aircraft to market by 2035. We are proud to sponsor the Net Zero Champion Award to acknowledge organisations that are taking positive action to drive the transition to a net zero global economy."
