Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper presents the progress of businesses towards Net Zero targets in a region in the UK, using the regional route map to Net Zero, which includes decarbonisation of supply chains (SC). It uses mixed methods: interviews and a survey questionnaire with senior managers. Findings indicate that progress towards Net Zero is being made, however it is slow and patchy. The contributions are: (1) understanding of the mismatch between the Net Zero targets and the reality of businesses across the region; (2) delineation of recommendations for SC practitioners and local councils to help businesses achieve Net Zero targets more effectively.
