The Net Zero challenge
We recognise that businesses are at different stages on their Net Zero journey; and will have different needs to turn their climate ambition into reality. Wherever you are on your journey, our expertise can guide you in answering key questions such as:
- How will we set the right targets?
- Do we have the right financial and operational setup to achieve these targets?
- How will we know when we are making progress, and if we are on track?
- How can we communicate progress inside and outside of our organisation?
- How will we inspire people to trust that we will deliver on our climate ambition?
That’s why we’ve created the Route to Net Zero Standard, helping organisations measure and manage their emissions, inform carbon reduction strategies, and align targets for the future.
Planning your route
We've developed 3 certification levels to guide you on your journey to Net Zero.
As you progress through the levels, the qualifying requirements become more challenging and cover more aspects of carbon management.
Our experts will guide you through the whole process, so you and your stakeholders can be confident that you are successfully meeting the targets needed to reach your Net Zero destination.
Each certificate covers the following:
- Historical reductions in operational emissions
- GHG emissions reduction target
- Foundational CO2e management practices
- Science-aligned reductions in emissions
- Science-aligned reduction target
- Advancing CO2e management practices
- 1.5°C aligned reductions in emissions
- Net Zero target
- Leading CO2e management practices
Podcast: Tiphaine Aries, consultant at the Carbon Trust, discusses how companies are planning for Net Zero emissions (originally published on Innovation Forum).
