Everyone has heard the term Net Zero, however there is still not an internationally agreed definition. The Carbon Trust’s definition is:
‘A net zero company will set and pursue an ambitious 1.5°C aligned science-based target for its full value-chain emissions. Any remaining hard-to-decarbonise emissions can be compensated using certified greenhouse gas removal.’
If you are reading this then you are probably one of the responsible businesses taking charge of the long-term future and rethinking the way of working.
This lower carbon future will only be achieved by companies, including our own, using energy more sustainably. This comes with its own set of challenges; obtaining buy-in from your senior management, arguing business cases for your sustainable actions against other business priorities, data collection and reporting overload at the expense of delivering the strategy.
At Faros we can work with you and plan for how you are going to achieve your net zero targets. We can help you measure what you are currently using, define your baseline, report and evidence your reduction achievements. Every business will have a different path, but in partnership with Faros, we can help close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.
