Cambridge Zero Carbon Society is a society founded to promote the policies and technologies necessary for the conversion to an economy and society with zero net-emissions of carbon dioxide and much reduced emissions of other greenhouse gases. We encourage the use of sustainable energy sources in a way that is economically viable and financially stable, maximising the efficiency of energy capture and use, and recognising the finiteness of all types of energy resource. We encourage understanding and transparency regarding energy and the environment amongst individuals/civil society, governments, companies, universities and other organisations.
