Net Zero Explained

Net Zero Explained

The UK government has set a goal to achieve Net Zero by 2050, but with any goal, the journey must start with a well-defined plan.


The term Net-Zero implies reaching a balance between greenhouse gas emissions emitted and greenhouse gas emissions taken out of the atmosphere. To help our clients better understand Net Zero and how they can achieve it in alignment with the UK government’s goal, we have collected some answers to FAQs about Net Zero below.

How can businesses achieve Net-Zero emissions?

For businesses to achieve Net Zero and help the government reach its target, they are required to reduce their carbon footprint. One of the first steps to reducing a carbon footprint is to identify the current carbon footprint of an organisation. This can be done by developing a road map. Road maps can help organisations better understand the steps required for their organisation to become carbon neutral.

Is it worth reaching Net Zero?

Yes, becoming Net Zero can give your company many advantages to not only you but the environment, such as an improved business reputation, lower energy costs, and a competitive advantage over competitors.
