Using a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) process we can start you on your journey to Net Zero and provide support with implementation using combined environmental and engineering expertise so you can achieve your Net Zero goals.
In June 2019, the UK became the first major country to legislate for a Net Zero target for carbon emissions by 2050 whilst the Scottish Government has a target of 75% reduction by 2030 and Net Zero target emissions by 2045.
For many organisations Net Zero can be a daunting goal and Net Zero will not be achieved overnight, it is a journey and commences with establishing a baseline and developing a planned approach to achieve Net Zero with defined and measurable targets. We can support if you are at the start of the journey with data collation and analysis to establish a baseline to support development of a realistic, site-specific strategy using the PDCA process familiar to many industries to tackle emissions reductions and to realise your Net Zero targets.
Net Zero consultancy can be delivered on a project by project basis or as part of a support services contract working alongside your internal Team to assist with driving forward actions to meet agreed timescales and monitor performance.
Net Zero means that total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions would be equal to or less than the emissions removed from the environment. This can be achieved by a combination of emission reduction and emission removal.
Reaching Net Zero would require continuing to reduce emissions from industry, households and from other activities, in particular those with the highest associated emissions such as transport, manufacturing and agriculture.
GHG emissions can be removed by the natural environment or by using technologies like carbon capture (usage) and storage (CC(U)S).
At a national level, The Committee on Climate Change estimate that in 2050 it is likely that somewhere between 75 to 175 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent will need to be removed by carbon capture annually in order to meet net zero, given it is unlikely that all sources of GHG emissions can be eliminated.
