Committing to Net Zero: How your business can become more sustainable in 2022.
Updated: Apr 20
What is the UK Government doing to tackle Climate Change?
Boris Johnson stated,
“If we actually want to stop climate change, then this must be the year in which we get serious about doing so. Because the 2020s will be remembered either as the decade in which world leaders united to turn the tide, or as a failure.”
To address the issue, the United Kingdom became the first large economy to adopt laws committing the country to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 in June 2019.
In other words, by the middle of the century, the goal is to cut net greenhouse gas emissions by 100%.
So, what is Net Zero and why is it so important?
The term 'Net Zero' refers to reaching a balance between carbon released and carbon absorbed from the atmosphere. This equilibrium occurs when the quantity of carbon we add to the atmosphere equals the amount removed within the same space.
So, how can businesses achieve their net zero goals in order to become more sustainable?
The first step is to use every resource at our disposal to attain this aim as swiftly and efficiently as possible.
