Climate Action in Practice
As a business, you have a responsibility to be transparent about your commitments. But with so much climate jargon out there, this can be a real challenge. Here are a few commons terms to help you understand the climate action landscape:
To reach “Net Zero,” a business must reduce scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions to zero or to a residual level that is aligned with limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
A climate positive business goes beyond net zero by removing additional CO2 from the atmosphere through projects such as reforestation and carbon storage.
Companies can account for unavoidable emissions by purchasing carbon offsets – this strategy should be used after your initial reduction efforts.
