Overview

Companies aiming to reach net zero are becoming the norm, and soon companies that are not on a transition path to net zero will be the exception, not the rule. Whatever part of the transition journey companies are currently on, reporting and setting targets should be a core part of the process. Offsetting will also play a crucial role in the net zero trajectory as they provide the opportunity to neutralise residual emissions while investing in nature. Script adapted from the thought leadership article written by Earthly Scientific Advisor Rosie Dunscombe.

Key learning objectives:

  • Define and understand net zero

  • Understand why targets are necessary for businesses to reach net zero

  • Comprehend the role of offsetting in a transitioning net zero economy
