Shaping Zero - The film
In a first for ICE, this year’s address was delivered virtually with over 2,000 people joining live across the world. Rachel’s address broke all records for the largest group of ICE members and supporters ever assembled at one time in ICE’s 202-year history. To date, the recorded address has been viewed over 3,000 times on the ICE website.
Net-zero carbon is a primary focus for the ICE for the year ahead, especially given the run-up to COP26, and we will be releasing a series of short films over the coming year to feature projects and areas of best practice in the UK and internationally that can help us towards net-zero.
