Net Zero & Strategy Planning

About Net Zero & Strategy Planning

It is important to have a clear understanding of what net zero means, edie defines net zero as “achieving an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions taken out of the atmosphere of the earth”.

There are a range of ways of measuring your carbon emissions and tracking the impact of your efforts to reduce them. Targets can be everything from the overall goal of bringing all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero, to science-based targets.

So, all businesses need to find ways to reduce their energy consumption, improve their energy efficiency across all sites, and take steps to offset any emissions. However, the precise details and complexity involved vary dramatically between industries. For example, those businesses with large and complex supply chains, collaboration is going to be key. 

It makes sense to form a strategy and a clear timeline towards net zero.
