What is Carbon Neutrality?
Carbon Neutrality involves reducing or offsetting the greenhouse emissions produced from an activity, such as running a business, to the point where the net emissions total zero.
Businesses and homes can commit to being carbon neutral by working through a process of reducing their grid energy consumption through upgrading to energy-efficient technologies, implementing renewable energy systems and, in some cases, through buying carbon offsets.
How to Become Carbon Neutral.
To achieve carbon neutral accreditation, an independent emissions assessment provider, qualified by an organisation such as ClimateActive, assesses the type, size and location of the business and where the most significant emissions are produced within the business.
Emissions are divided into three categories, or ‘scopes’ as they’re called. Then there are nine key steps to carbon neutral certification:
- Define organisational boundary
- Identify key emission sources
- Collect data
- Summarise data
- Use ClimateActive calculators
- Generate carbon inventory
- Determine impact of reduction strategies
- Identify leftover emissions
- Determine offset
