Planet Mark launches Zero Carbon Tour and UK’s first ‘Carbon Battle Bus’

We were joined by The RT Hon The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman William Russell on 28 April in announcing Planet Mark’s Zero Carbon Tour. The eight-month tour aims to illustrate the phenomenal array of actions the business community is taking to address the climate crisis and take the net zero carbon message to communities around the world.

The Tour will start virtually in May before hitting the road for live events in the UK’s first fully electric Carbon Battle Bus, launching in June, and culminating at COP26 in Glasgow in November.  

The Tour aims to share the net zero carbon message to communities across the UK in support of the UN-backed Race to Zero campaign, the world’s largest alliance of actors committed to halving global emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the latest. It will highlight how businesses can set their own credible net zero carbon targets in line with The Race to Zero’s rigorous minimum criteria and implement plans to achieve them. 

The physical stop-offs during the Tour will provide everything a business needs to know to go net zero through free-to-attend carbon clinics as well as free Net Zero Essentials workshops, which will give participants the tools and knowledge to join Race to Zero with a robust net zero target and an action plan to support it. 

The Tour will also include press events and networking opportunities to help support businesses to get started on their sustainability journeys. 

We can’t wait to share the incredible initiatives and stories from our community and beyond over the next eight-months, and we hope you’ll join us on the Zero Carbon Tour.
