Roadmap for Net Zero
Climate change is the defining issue our generation need to overcome. Having passed the point of no return for no change to our climate, we now have global agreement to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.
This means every person, organisation and country needs to make commitments to reduce their impacts. Legally binding targets decarbonisation or Net Zero exist in most countries and a clear plan of action is needed for how your organisation is going to achieve that.
We can help you understand and develop a plan of action for how you can responsibly manage your environmental and carbon footprint. Some of the questions we have helped clients answer include:
What are your main impacts and material issues?
What are the stakeholder obligations you have to embed, and report to?
What is your starting point? Do you have a good Environmental Management System, do you know your water or carbon footprint?
What reductions do you need to achieve, by when? Should this be to science-based targets?
How are you going to achieve those targets?
We can help you to:
Set up and run your climate change approach
We can help you set up, brief and manage on an ongoing basis a Climate Change Taskforce to develop and enact your climate change strategy.
Review and recommend improvements
We can review your current performance, identify your carbon footprint and recommend how you can better manage your environment and energy responsibilities.

Climate Change in Action
Developing and facilitating a climate change taskforce
Climate change is the defining issue of modern times; the impacts of our activities are already being felt and the need for swift radical change has never been clearer. But change is difficult, especially when business processes, mind-sets, infrastructure, incentives and markets, and ways of working can encourage less sustainable actions.
