About NZE

The UNFCCC Paris Conference of the Parties saw a historic agreement by world governments to keep planetary warming below 2°C from pre-industrial levels. To do this, the global community needs to peak its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2025, halve them by 2050; and achieve net zero emissions by 2100. Over and above the political challenges to achieve this, a radical transition away from business as usual is required. This presents immense opportunities to create new products and services to drive the redesign of our economies. We see entrepreneurs as the implementing agents of the transition towards net zero emission economies.

The Net Zero Emissions Group (NZE) is a holding company that houses a number of initiatives that drive an entrepreneurial agenda of transitioning economies towards environmentally  compatible development. The holding company aims to unlock a number of opportunities for scalable investment in sustainable products and services through a range of subsidiary for-profit and non-profit vehicles. NZE’s pipeline of high-impact technologies, solutions and finance are changing the way economies transact and interact, paying regard to global environmental integrity.

The Group was founded by sustainability professionals who sought a common and united front through which to drive change. Underpinned by strong entrepreneurial acumen, the Founders of NZE (Adhila Mayet, Blaise Dobson, Lowell Scarr) pooled a diverse set of expertise to create an ecosystem of companies at the forefront of providing scalable solutions for a more sustainable world.
