Planet Pod gets to net zero
This podcast series, created by the Grantham Institute and producers Planet Pod, digs deeper into the science behind the net-zero target, and how achieving it will demand far-reaching changes in every sector.
The series, presented by Amanda Carpenter and featuring Imperial academics, takes an in-depth look at the target of net zero emissions, exploring what this term means, the global perspective, and how it will impact different parts of the UK economy. The series is available on Planet Pod and via all major podcast providers.

What is net zero? How do we achieve it? What will it look like and can we get there by 2050? Join Professor Jim Skea, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change member and Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group III, and Alyssa Gilbert, Director of Policy and Translation at the Grantham Institute, for the first episode in our series on getting to net zero, which takes an in-depth look at the target of net-zero emissions.
Clean energy revolution
Clean, green energy, locally sourced and locally managed. Just a pipe dream or realistic vision of the future? In the second of our series, Dr Jeff Hardy and Dr Madeleine Morris explore what smart local net zero energy systems mean for our communities, for our energy bills and for our lives – a positive smorgasbord of new ways of heating and powering our homes and businesses!
How wasteful is the UK? Where does your recycling go and how much is recycled? What is residual waste? Can you avoid making waste in the first place? Can waste have value? In the third episode of our series, Professors Chris Cheeseman and Nick Voulvoulis spill the beans about what happening in the UK’s bins.
