East Coast Zero: Creating a better world is a team effort
As a leading communications consultancy in the clean energy sector, we’re excited to join forces with Awe & Sonder and Green Lamb Consulting in a strategic partnership to support the UK’s Net Zero journey by unleashing the potential of East Anglia.
A part of Content Coms’ range of activities to support the nation’s green growth agenda, ‘East Coast Zero’ will make the case to Government that the East Anglian coastal region has a critical role to play in accelerating Net Zero in the UK.
Through our partnership’s collaborative efforts, we aim to secure cross-party support for transformational infrastructure investment that will allow this region to fully realise its clean growth potential.
A powerful collaboration
We’re pooling our complementary skills and experience to lead this call as part of our deep-held commitment to help speed up the UK’s Net Zero activities and help fulfill our mission of making a lasting positive impact as a Certified B Corporation.
Content Coms’ participation is led by Esther Griffin, our Director of Energy and Clean Tech, who works with clients across the UK and North Europe many of which have suppliers or customers based in the East Anglia region.
Our partner Carli Harper-Penman of Awe & Sonder is based in Norwich and has more than a decade’s experience in strategic communications, stakeholder engagement and public affairs with specific expertise in housing. Carli is also an Associate Director at Content Coms.
Ned Lamb of Green Lamb Consulting also brings ten years’ experience as a public policy and strategic communications consultant, as well as being Research Fellow at Warwick Business School, where he is advising on the development a low-carbon smart energy system.
Commenting on the launch of East Coast Zero, Carli Harper-Penman says: “From levelling-up through to the shared prosperity fund, investment in Norfolk and Suffolk has too often been overlooked. We’re shining a light on the region’s potential to become a centre of best practice for clean growth and help the UK meet its decarbonisation obligations.”
Autumn roundtable event
East Coast Zero will kick off with a Roundtable Event in autumn 2023 for senior business, academic and political leaders from across Norfolk and Suffolk to discuss how the region can incubate a world leading Net Zero economy, and the challenges it must overcome to achieve this goal.
“Creating a better world is a team effort.”
“Our aim is to bring together businesses, academics and researchers, policy makers and the public from across Norfolk, Suffolk, and beyond, to press for real change,” says Esther Griffin.
“If the UK is to speed up its Net Zero journey, we need to realise the potential of different regions to contribute. And the East Coast offers a full range, from renewable energy and energy efficient housing to climate science, regenerative agriculture and food systems innovation. It’s all here.”
Ned Lamb of Green Lamb Consulting adds:
“The region has the vital ingredients to become a thriving net zero economy of the future – but those with a stake in making this a reality must be ambitious and work collaboratively to draw the political attention needed to encourage investment and talent to the region.
“We’re inviting anyone with an interest in the future of East Anglia to get involved.”
