What is the climate crisis?
The most crucial issue facing the world today...
The global climate crisis is well documented. You hear about it on the news, you see it on social media and it already affects many of your daily choices.
Human activities release billions of tons of Greenhouse Gas emissions into the atmosphere every year. The consequences of decades of emissions are being seen and felt in every corner of the globe today.
Addressing this crisis requires a response that engages all parts of society, enabling everyone to participate in positive change. This is the most critical issue facing the world today which makes it the most critical issue for your customers, employees and investors and you.
What is “Net Zero”?
Everyone’s talking about it, but what does Net Zero mean?
In simple terms, “Net Zero” is about equilibrium. The often-referenced Paris Accord of 2015 included a net zero emissions approach as a part of the plan to fight climate change. This is all with a view to holding the global average temperature increase to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.
Applied to business, this means that all Greenhouse Gas emissions are matched by an equivalent quantity of attributable Greenhouse Gas removals.
The route to getting there differs hugely from one industry to the next. Everybody, particularly SMEs, needs clear guidance about what Net Zero means to them and how they can tangibly get there.
Why go Net Zero?
Why wait when we can start your journey now?
It is clear, then, that the planet will benefit from a net zero approach. The United Nations International Panel on Climate Change, for example, has stated that to avoid dangerous warming we must create a Net Zero global economy.
It is no secret that this is an issue that has significant backing from the general public as well. Social movements and public pressure have helped to speed up the response from global leaders.
The environmental and social demand for change has resulted in clear economic reasons for businesses to adapt. Positive changes are not just being demanded by consumers, but by employees and investors too.
Why wait for 2030, ‘40 or ‘50, when we have the ability and the will to go Net Zero now?
How do we get there?
Net Zero Now is your trusted route to becoming a Net Zero business
The desire from businesses to go Net Zero is pretty much universal. Until now, the route to get there has been less clear.
What is certain, is that each sector needs a bespoke solution - the challenge a restaurant faces in measuring and reducing its emissions is vastly different to the challenge faced by an ad agency, a builder or a hair salon!
We have worked with key players in each industry to reach consensus on what Net Zero means in practice for businesses in each sector.This has a resulted in a growing series of sector-specific solutions that are not only compliant with the relevant global guidelines (the GHG Protocol, The Science Based Targets Initiative, The Oxford University Principles for Net Zero Aligned Carbon Offsetting, etc) but also tailored to the needs of businesses – easily accessible, understandable and actionable, no matter what sector you come from.
Successfully following our process will result in recognised certification and positive climate action that your business and its stakeholders can be proud of.
