Sustainability and Net Zero
Key Resources

Our resource page shares key materials from the HEF Sustainability & Climate Change Task Group to support the heritage sector on the path to Net Zero

The HEF Sustainability & Climate Change Task Group brings together heritage and climate change professionals to increase access to net zero expertise and to share crucial learning on sustainability and net zero progress.

Here we have brought together key materials shared during the Task Group sessions to produce the HEF Net Zero Resource List. We will be updating the list periodically.

You can also view our HEF Net Zero Guide, which sets out the steps small and medium sized organisations can take to reduce emissions. 

On this page you will also find webinar recordings and slide packs produced by guest speakers at some of our recent Task Group meetings.
