Uniting sustainability and energy practitioners for a day of co-creative workshops; sparking new business ideas and actions on the path to net-zero

SPARK! is edie’s long-running and hugely popular event for energy and sustainability professionals.    

Hosted as part of edie’s Net-Zero November campaign of content and events, this full-day event creates the time and space for energy and sustainability changemakers to connect, collaborate and accelerate progress towards net-zero emissions. 

The primary purpose of the day is to spark new ideas and actions among corporate net-zero leaders. The unique event will include a keynote presentation and panel discussion involving an array of business and climate thought-leaders, a networking lunch, and six collaborative roundtables that will see like-minded peers co-create solutions to key decarbonisation challenges and discuss exciting new opportunities.
