Net zero strategy

Set a science based Net Zero strategy and certify your targets

What is net zero?

Put simply, net zero means cutting your business or organisational greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible. For most organisations, this means achieving a removal of all scope 1 & 2 emissions and a 50% reduction in scope 3 emissions. 

Over 1,200 companies have put in place science-based targets in line with global net zero commitments, pledging to take  genuine action to halve global emissions by 2030. 

Why implement a certified net zero strategy?

Companies and organisations who commit to science based net zero strategies are demonstrating that creating a climate-secure world goes hand-in-hand with successful and responsible business operations.

 Companies who adopt a science based net zero strategy report that it boosts profitability, improves investor confidence, drives innovation, reduces regulatory uncertainty and, strengthens brand reputation.

Positive climate action

Make credible, science based net zero commitments

To avoid the catastrophic impacts of climate change, GHG emissions must halve by 2030 – and drop to net-zero by 2050. We have limited time for action and the private sector has a crucial role to play – every sector in every market must transform. Organisations with science based net zero targets are already cutting emissions at scale; all businesses must now join them.

Setting science-based net-zero targets supports an ambitious global decarbonisation roadmap which demonstrates alignment with the Paris Agreement, and promotes responsible business action.
