Mark Chapman is the founder and CEO of the 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.
ZCF’s 50 members include leading UK/global brewing and hospitality organisations representing over 30% of the sectors’ outlets to make a commitment to net zero emissions by 2030 on their own operations and 2040 across their supply chain.
Prior to founding the forum in 2020, Mark founded Zero Carbon Services, the leading provider of carbon measurement and reduction services in the hospitality sector. It’s proprietary carbon analytics platform helps companies measure, report and reduce carbon emissions to cut carbon and costs.
Mark believes passionately that to solve the climate crises and ensure our survival, industries must collaborate to design and implement plans to reach net zero emissions. With food and drink representing over a third of global emissions, employing and serving millions of people everyday, the Brewing and Hospitality Sector are uniquely placed to lead that transition to net zero, together at pace.
Zero Carbon Forum is supported by experienced practitioners and industry experts, endorsed by UK Government and is backed by trade associations, UKHospitality (UKH) and the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA).
