Does creating a pathway to carbon net zero really matter?


Rather than wait for a long-winded answer at the bottom of this article to the question: Does creating a pathway to carbon net zero really matter?

We’re going to answer it right away.

The answer is: Yes.

Keep reading to find out why it’s crucial for your business and how you can create your pathway.

Understanding Carbon Net-Zero.


What is carbon net zero?

Simply put, it means reducing your business’ carbon emissions to as close to zero as possible by becoming highly energy efficient and using on-site and/or off-site renewable energy with any remaining carbon balance offset.”On the road to net zero, one of the main ways that companies’ greenhouse gas emissions are measured and assessed is to look at them within three different ‘scopes’.

Scope 1 emissions— This one covers the Green House Gas (GHG) emissions that a company makes directly — for example while running its boilers and vehicles.

Scope 2 emissions — These are the emissions it makes indirectly – like when the electricity or energy it buys for heating and cooling buildings, is being produced on its behalf.

Scope 3 emissions — Now here’s where it gets tricky. In this category go all the emissions associated, not with the company itself, but that the organisation is indirectly responsible for, up and down its value chain. For example, from buying products from its suppliers, and from its products when customers use them. Emissions-wise, Scope 3 is nearly always the big one.

The Challenges Of Navigating The Energy Sector.


While all those benefits are exciting and might make you want to jump straight in, navigating the complex energy sector is one of the biggest issues for any business. To reach net zero, you need to implement compliance and best practice schemes and reporting, like:

  • The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
  • Streamlined energy and carbon reporting (SECR)
  • Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) & Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)
  • BREEAM assessments
