The Zero Emissions Network (ZEN) is a multiple award-winning air quality business liaison initiative. The network is free to join and helps businesses and more recently, residents in London's City Fringe area save money, reduce emissions and improve local air quality. The network offers free advice and services to switch to low emission energy and travel options with the goal of making the City Fringe a better place to live, work and visit.
Since it was established in 2012, the Zero Emissions Network has gained close to 1300 business members and over 700 residential members from across Bunhill, Shoreditch and Spitalfields. The scheme addresses the growing problems of air pollution by raising awareness and encouraging positive behaviour change. To date, the network has delivered over 800 emission reducing initiatives and continues to deliver improvements in air quality.
Registering a business or household to the Zero Emissions Network allows members to benefit from bespoke advice, free trials and cash-saving services as well as exclusive invitations to networking opportunities and business forums. Members can also take advantage of the Zero Emissions Network's loyalty discount scheme 'ZENCARD' which offers further benefits and discounts.
The Zero Emissions Network is a partnership project between the London Boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets and it is supported by the Mayor of London.
