COP26 focused on keeping 1.5°C alive, or limiting climate change to only 1.5°C of warming to mitigate the most significant impacts of the climate crisis. The Glasgow Climate Pact was formed, encouraging countries to set new carbon reduction targets by 2023 forthcoming net zero regulation, but we need to act faster, and all businesses have a key role to play.
Many organisations are recognising the urgent need to commit to net zero carbon targets. Net zero is a framework from which every organisation can play their part in addressing the climate crisis.
We can design a bespoke net zero package to meet your unique net zero challenges, no matter what stage of the journey you are on.
This can be achieved by focusing on four key areas:
A great place to start is to upskill you and your teams on what net zero is and how to start achieving it. Gain a CPD qualification and help build more purpose with staff so they can play an active role in your net zero journey. Our Net Zero Carbon Essentials Workshop is recommended for businesses just starting out or teams in your business who would benefit from understanding more about net zero.
Our Net Zero Action Plan and ZeroBy30 programme will support with target-setting and aligning with science-based targets. All of our Zero Carbon Solutions are aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)’s Net-Zero Standard, the world’s first standard for corporate net zero emissions.
The Planet Mark Business Certification will set the foundations for measuring your Scope 1, 2 and a number of your Scope 3 emissions. Once you have a good understanding of your direct emissions, you must then look to expand your Scope 3 footprinting to cover all your significant Scope 3 emissions, including areas such as your upstream supply chain emissions. We can support you with a Scope 3 mapping exercise to understand what categories you need to include within your measurement, and provide measurement for most Scope 3 categories.
Having a strategy to achieve net zero is as critical as setting your initial target. Two of our products can help with this. The Net Zero Action Plan gives you the tools and knowledge to create your own action plan and provides annual governance of your plan. The ZeroBy30 programme goes deeper, and provides you with a detailed and costed strategy into action plan.
Aimed at small businesses (10-50 people), teams and individuals wanting to learn more about Net Zero Carbon. This is a three-hour CPD accredited online training session that will give you the confidence to take the first steps towards your business’ net zero commitment.
if your business is setting net zero targets, you will need to assess and measure all material Scope 3 emissions.
When you purchase goods or services for your business or your customers travel to your location, you are indirectly responsible for the associated carbon emissions; but do you know how much they are? In many cases, these are the largest share of your carbon footprint. Having a robust measurement of your business’ material scope 3 emissions will enable you to set realistic targets and create a meaningful strategy and action plan to reach net zero.
Scope 3 footprinting can be combined with our Net Zero Action Plan or ZeroBy30 programmes.
This comprehensive six-hour interactive workshop aimed at business leaders and sustainability professionals gives you the tools and knowledge to set targets and create a credible and robust net zero action plan.
For best results this workshop should be teamed with a full Scope 3 carbon footprint calculation , which can be delivered either before or after your workshop.
Our expert team will review your progress and action plan annually, providing governance to support your robustness and transparency.
The ZeroBy30 programme goes beyond Planet Mark certification targets. It sets absolute reduction goals to reach net zero carbon by 2030 through a transformational action plan. You will be able to reduce your Scope 1 and 2 direct emissions to zero carbon, and Scope 3 indirect emissions by a minimum of 50% and then balance the remaining carbon through exceptional carbon removal schemes.
