Carbon Footprint + Action + Net-Zero / Zero-Carbon
All organisations that hope to be successful in the 2020s and beyond must transition to low-carbon sustainable operation. They must become part of the solution from being part on the problem, and be able to demonstrate this.
Whatever the longer term aim might be (Zero Carbon, Net-Zero, Carbon Neutrality, etc. – these terms will hopefully become clearer!), there are also many short and medium term business benefits from action too. Alignment with the Paris Agreement, on an emissions reduction trajectory keeping global heating below 1.5ºC, is the benchmark.
For businesses in Scotland, as a minimum, this means Net-Zero emissions by 2045 (via 50%▼by 2030).
