Net-Zero Carbon

Making a commitment to net-zero carbon means reducing greenhouse gas emissions with the goal of ensuring that the emissions going into the atmosphere are balanced by emissions being removed from the atmosphere. Net-zero is achieved when the amount added in is no more than the amount taken away.

Net-zero can be achieved by:

  • Reducing emissions across all activities as much as possible
  • Funding the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
