  • What is Net Zero?
    Net Zero refers to the balance between greenhouse gases produced and greenhouse gases removed from the atmosphere, firstly through the reduction of emissions, then by neutralising residual emissions with permanent carbon removals. By using science-based targets, we can clearly define a pathway to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and future-proofing business growth. Targets are considered ‘science-based’ if they are align with what the latest climate science deems necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement – limiting global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C, by no later than 2050. Become Net Zero Carbon.
  • How do I keep track of my Net Zero journey?
    Monitoring and reporting of your progress will engage shareholders and stakeholders during the transition to Net Zero emissions. As organisations chart a course towards Net Zero emissions by 2050 they will need to demonstrate that they are on the right path, through transparent and auditable reporting. We will provide the quality assured and documented data systems you need, to provide the sustainability disclosures as they may be required.
  • Where do you start?
    Do you know what your carbon footprint is? Do you know how to reduce your carbon emissions? Are you aware of the impacts on your business? Do you know the cost to your business, if a reduction of your carbon footprint isn’t achieved? Have you completed your carbon emissions baseline? Decarbonology can measure organisations’ current carbon footprints and help them develop strategies to reduce emissions in line with Science Based Targets to achieve Net Zero. It’s not just about helping the planet but giving businesses a competitive edge in a Net Zero world.
  • What does Decarbonology do?
    Decarbonology helps companies measure carbon emissions, undertake full Life Cycle Analyses for products and services, develop emission reduction strategies and provide carbon offsets. We work with you to develop and deliver complete sustainability solutions, decarbonisation and achieve their Net Zero targets.
  • What types of emission reduction strategies can be used?
    Strategies to reduce emissions may include energy efficiencies, alternate energy sources, engagement from relevant stakeholders in the supply chain, embracing renewable energy solutions as well as investments. We can assist to offset emissions once all reduction options have been considered to assist your journey to a Net Zero world. Businesses can help by reducing their own carbon emissions as well as advocating for others to embark on positive change.
  • What is the first step?
    Firstly, you need to establish your emissions baseline. This includes all emissions generated across your business, both directly and through your value chain. This provides a starting point, for setting goals and tracking towards a Net Zero outcome. We will then work with you to develop a strategic timeline that meets both your goals and the appetite of your Board and assist you to monitor your progress against those goals.
  • Why should companies report?
    Organisations can no longer afford to turn a blind eye on the climate crisis. Faced with increasing demands from investors, shareholders and customers, it is vital that their path to Net Zero is clear and achievable. From the smallest house to the largest corporation, we all have a carbon footprint which contributes to climate change. Across the globe, climate change impacts all of us and we are fast approaching the point of no return. Collectively, we must take action to turn the tide by drastically reducing our emissions, removing those that are already there, and neutralising those that we cannot avoid.
  • What are the incentives of carbon emissions reporting?
    Positive differentiation of your company in the market by being a climate leader Companies that have a commitment to emissions reductions are looked upon more favourably by Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) sensitive companies and investors. Generation of savings through lower energy costs. Risk mitigation for increasingly regulated and mandated international standards that taxes carbon consumption. Preparedness for increasing international reporting and compliance disclosure of carbon emissions. Participation in restructured local and international supply chains that focus on reduced emissions and costs. Showcase your commitment as part of broader business coalitions that are committed to increased targets and climate ambition. The global market is experiencing a shift in the supply chain that sees consumers favouring ESG sensitive companies committed to Net Zero targets. Investors evaluating the performance of these companies will avoid the financial risks posed by those without reporting capabilities or targets. These companies are also exposed to government-imposed tariffs and exclusion from supply chains. Primarily driven by shareholders, banks, insurance companies and the EU, companies are required to improve environmentally, specifically to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. International reporting standards, supply chain access, accessibility to finance and compliance with international tax regimes provide the economic incentive.
