The term “net zero” is often used to describe targets for greenhouse gas emissions. A net zero target means that, over a set period of time, the amount of greenhouse gases emitted is equal to the amount removed from the atmosphere.
The UK government has set a target of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This means that, by 2050, the UK will need to have removed as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as it has emitted.
There are a number of ways that this can be achieved, such as planting trees or using technology to capture and store carbon dioxide. Businesses will also play a vital role in helping to achieve this target.
Many businesses are already taking steps to reduce their emissions, but there is still more to be done. Companies like us at Auditel work with businesses to help them measure their carbon emission and fottprint, become more energy efficient, and move to cleaner forms of energy.
By working together, we can make sure that the UK meets its net zero targets and helps to tackle climate change. Contact our carbon solutions team here.
