The Centre’s mission is to foster an interdisciplinary environment to provide a focal point for King’s science and engineering research in net zero. It promotes a whole systems approach to these challenges, drawing upon the faculties and disciplines across King’s to work toward delivering solutions that work in practice in our world.
The Net Zero Centre serves to highlight, nurture and facilitate discovery and applied research to address the challenges for decarbonising our society and reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing, infrastructure, and cities. Based in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical and Engineering Sciences (NMES), the Centre works across the boundaries of disciplines at King’s from geography and business to law and social science to deliver solutions for sustainable development. The Centre fosters the next generation of King’s change-makers by educating scientists and engineers on the holistic context of these challenges and developing technologically aware social scientists, lawyers, and policy makers.

Supporting the transition to net zero carbon in industry, transport, and the energy sector by developing new technologies to reduce CO2 emissions in conjunction with exploring optimization models for the carbon finance markets to help the decarbonisation process.
Designing and developing processes and products to reduce and reuse waste and minimise environmental impact from new designs to retrofitting.
Optimising the equitable allocation of resources to reduce energy consumption and reduce environmental effects.
Making our cities adaptable and liveable with low carbon, environmentally sustainable technologies alongside developing new solutions for energy efficient connectivity.

The seminar series provides a platform to foster collaboration and to develop interdisciplinary research projects. With this series, we aim to share knowledge of our current research activities as well as discussing emerging research opportunities that will benefit from interdisciplinary collaboration.
Every month we host a speaker to discuss a new research idea and seek contributions from other Faculty members. A half-hour talk is followed by discussion, and we encourage speakers to engage with colleagues on research related to our four priority areas, to create new interdisciplinary connections and to develop collaborative proposals.
We welcome speakers from centres, institutes, and research group across the College, but also from industry and other institutions.
