The RMetS hosted its second Climate Change Forum at the Coin Street Conference Centre, London, on 20 October 2022, with support from the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST),1 the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation (CIHT)2 and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).3 The event brought together academics, policymakers and professionals to discuss the actions needed within the next 5–10 years to reach Net Zero emissions by 2050. The Net Zero target was identified as necessary to achieve the Paris Agreement's 1.5°C goal as set out in the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The morning included keynotes from experts, with interactive discussions in the afternoon. Discussion groups focused on three sectors considered vital to reaching Net Zero: food, transport and buildings. The conference was opened by RMetS President Lesley Gray (University of Oxford).
