Heroes of Net Zero: winners announced at COP26

The #NetZeroHeroes competition, with the government’s Together for our Planet campaign, recognised small businesses that have found creative ways to cut carbon emissions and go net zero by 2050.

The winner in the micro business category was Design Abled, which developed Helloface, a transparent, recyclable face mask suitable for the healthcare, construction, retail and hospitality industries. London-based Design Abled made cutting emissions central to its entire operations during the pandemic.

The winner in the small business category was camera specialist VMI, which installed solar panels and insulation, switched to electric vans and sent no waste to landfill in a 15-month period.

Other highly commended businesses included Leicestershire micro dairy Ganders Goat and the carbon-neutral Lake District holiday destination, the Quiet Site.
