Founder & CEO, Zero Carbon Forum
The work of the Hospitality Carbon Zero Forum
About: 

Mark Chapman is the founder and CEO of Zero Carbon Forum, a non-profit organisation which builds on 10 years of carbon reduction collaboration in the UK’s hospitality sector. Zero Carbon Forum enables members to reach their sustainability targets faster, more efficiently and more cost effectively than acting alone.

With over 20 years' experience, Mark has held several successful tenures, including Commercial Director at ttMobiles and Commercial Manager at Cable & Wireless Worldwide, before founding Carbon Statement, the leading provider of energy cost saving solutions in the hospitality sector. Its proprietary iC analytics platform helps companies monitor and control energy use, eliminate waste and achieve sustainability goals. In 2017, he went on to found Zero Carbon Forum.

Mark believes passionately and firmly that the global hospitality industry must act now to reach net zero faster, together. The window of opportunity to avert climate change disaster is closing fast and the industry must focus on reducing emissions, and a path to net zero, and support the Government’s green industrial revolution.

The Forum is supported by experienced practitioners and industry experts, endorsed by Government and is backed by trade associations, UKHospitality and the British Beer and Pub Association.

By September 2021, Zero Carbon Forum will publish the first publicly available roadmap to achieve net zero carbon by September 2021, ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 26).
