Net-Zero: Policies and Politics

DateWednesday 14 February 2024


LocationThe Hub


Net Zero pledges by countries, cities and organisations are now omnipresent. But what do these commitments mean, and how can they be operationalised in a credible, fair and effective manner? At this event, we will take a closer look at the meaning and operationalisation of Net Zero, before diving more deeply into the politics of Net Zero in countries of the Global South, as well as asking how Net Zero can be achieved within the City of Oxford, and at Oxford Colleges.


  • Samuel Fankhauser, Professor of Climate Change Economics and Policy, Smith School and the School of Geography and the Environment
  • Jessica Omukuti, Research Fellow on Inclusive Net Zero, Oxford Net Zero Initiative and Institute of Science Innovation and Technology (InSIS)
  • Fatima Benkhaled, Oxford Net Zero and St. John’s College
  • Anna Railton, Oxford City Council member for Zero Carbon Oxford and Climate Justice
  • Johanna Arlinghaus, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment (moderator)

This event is free and open to all. Booking is required.

Refreshments will be served from 5 pm in the Kellogg Hub, followed by the talk at 5.30pm and there will be a drinks reception after the event.

Open to: Members of Kellogg College, the public,
