Oh Yes! Net Zero is a collaborative movement of Hull and Humber-based organisations committed to taking action to achieve net zero. Pace has been selected as its preferred marketing agency partner to encourage more local companies – particularly SMEs – to get on the road to net zero.

Anita Pace, MD, said: “We are delighted to be working with Oh Yes! Net Zero to create inspiring content to support members in making progress against their net zero plans while also encouraging more local organisations to join the movement.”

Oh Yes! Net Zero was established last year by founding partners Reckitt, Hull City Council, Future Humber and the University of Hull. The campaign already provides practical support for 150 businesses and organisations to create and deliver net zero plans and aims for Hull to lead the way in demonstrating how a city can tackle climate change. Potential members can sign up here.

Other Pace clients with sustainability at their core include environmentally-friendly cleaning brand Bio-D and international waste plastic road company MacRebur.

Bio-D is B-Corp certified, which means it is one of only 6,700 companies in the world that meets the highest sustainability standards, while MacRebur is committed to solving the worldwide waste plastic epidemic by processing plastic destined for landfill for use in road construction and surfacing products.

Anita continued: “Sustainability is a cause that is close to our hearts. It’s a privilege to work with the Oh Yes! Net Zero team and I’m delighted that we are continuing to expand our client base of organisations committed to taking action on climate change.”

Oh Yes! Net Zero recently marked its first year with the publication of a report outlining progress made and lessons learned. The report was presented to MPs, political stakeholders, and policy makers at a parliamentary reception in Westminster and shared with Oh Yes! Net Zero members and other local organisations at an event in Hull, which Pace supported.
