Net Zero – what does it mean for SME business?

15 July 2021 12pm

The clock is ticking for all businesses to meet the Paris Agreement Targets.

We need to halve global greenhouse gas emissions BEFORE 2030 and reach net zero by 2050 at the latest (even this is arguably too late).

This interactive webinar introduced us to some startling facts but more importantly what we can all do – starting small but together making a big difference. Some definitions, easy-to-use tools, methods, and explanations such as scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions and why they are all important to measure.

This must-attend session built understanding about climate change and the accompanying ecological emergency and how as an individual, business owner, or employee can help the UK in the Race to Zero.

The webinar was be led by Fran Ellington, Business Development and ESG Director at Triple Bottom Line Accountants.

Fran covered

-what is meant by terms such as Net Zero, Zero emissions, Carbon Neutral, CO2 and CO2e

-which greenhouse gases are the worst for global warming and why.

-how to measure your own emissions or seek help from a growing number of CO2e emission consultants.

-how to make a climate commitment with actionable targets for reducing emissions each year between now and 2030.


Some useful links and resources and hopefully replacing any “climate anxiety” with a plan of action and some cautious optimism.
