Oh Yes! Net Zero


From the early abolition of slavery to embracing the role of UK City of Culture 2017, Hull has led the UK before, and we will do it again.  Oh Yes! Net Zero is a unique opportunity for everyone in the city region to come together once more and make a positive impact on the world around us.  This time, we will do it by working together to drive down our carbon footprint and make sure we lead the way in the UK’s fight against the effects of climate change on our city and our region.  We want to do it our way and lead the way in becoming net zero for the UK.  There aren’t many cities that could do this, but we really can.

Let’s face facts: Climate change can’t be solved overnight, but we need to start somewhere and, if we all take small positive steps now through working together and supporting each other, we can really make a big difference together.

What are we doing?

Out of the six largest industrial clusters in the UK, the Humber is responsible for around 37% of CO2 emissions in the UK.1 We need to focus on reducing the carbon footprint of the region.

We also know that cities have a crucial role to play in energy reduction, climate protection and climate adaptation.2 In 2019, the largest overall regional reduction in emissions since 2018 was reported in Yorkshire and the Humber (down 4.9%)3 but there is still work to be done. Our objective is for Hull to lead the way in demonstrating how a city can become net zero.

How will we do this?

The Oh Yes! Campaign will unite the city and region as we work together to lead the UK to a cleaner, greener, and more prosperous future. The campaign will demonstrate how we can make net zero happen in Hull, sharing our learnings with the Humber and beyond.

Oh Yes! Net Zero is a positive action-led campaign that everyone can be a part of. It is about saying “Yes!” to the challenge, saying “Yes!” to making positive changes to the way we live, work and travel and saying “Yes!” to being part of something very special for our future generations in Hull.

We all need to come together now to prove how much we care about the future of our region, our workplaces, our homes, and our communities and reduce our carbon footprint. Let’s all say Oh Yes! Net Zero, because we CAN all make a difference and help lead the way to a net zero future. Sign up now to be part of it.
