Supporting your business on its journey to Net-Zero

For companies to succeed on their journey to net-zero, they must take steps to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, becoming carbon neutral

Your Carbon Management Journey

Measure Carbon Footprint

Whether at a business unit or corporate level, it is imperative to first understand your current carbon footprint, a baseline to understand the improvements that can be made.

Apply Efficiency Measures

Whatever your industry, we will work with you to identify how and where you can apply efficiency measures to both internal processes and projects.

Offset the remainder

It is almost impossible for any business to become entirely carbon neutral in their operations alone. We provide the opportunity to offset the remainder by investing in one of our projects, using our Carbon Offset Platform.

Marketing & Communications

ESG continues to be of importance, three categories that enable businesses to measure the real sustainable and societal impact of their outputs. Communicating your carbon reduction efforts to stakeholders is key.

NETZERO offers two methods to measuring Carbon Footprint:

1. Continuous Measurement

We have partnered with venture capital backed Persefoni to provide our clients access to a SaaS based carbon management platform, a software that uses AI technology to manage carbon inventories and transactions with the same level of maturity as a company’s Financial ERP system.

2. Periodic Measurement

For businesses looking to measure their carbon footprint on a periodic basis (i.e. annually), NETZERO has access to ISO 14064 trained individuals, able to complete a thorough inventory of your organization’s energy use and verification of your carbon footprint.

The Value in Carbon Offsetting

“An Imperial College University Study shows that for every 1 ton of C02 emission removed from the atmosphere through a carbon offset program – a further value of US$664 dollars is delivered in economic, social and environmental benefits for local communities around the world.”

— ‘Quantification and Evaluation of the Voluntary Carbon Market’s Co-benefits’, Imperial College London, Kountouris, Y., Makuch, Z., Tan Loh, E.F. (2014).

Benefits to Offsetting

The obvious positive is that GHG emissions are mitigated however there’s also value to buyers who are looking to build reputation and brand image and to differentiate themselves in their markets. In a survey carried out by Imperial College London, businesses ranked the following as the primary motivators for buying offsets:

  1. Reputation/Brand Image
  2. Employee Engagement
  3. Market Differentiation

Security of adhering to internationally recognized standards

All emission reduction projects come with the added security of adhering to internationally recognized standards

Gold Standard is a standard and certification body established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs as a best practice standard to ensure projects that reduced carbon emissions under the UN’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) also delivered on the dual mandate to foster sustainable development.

Verra – The Verified Carbon Standard, Verra or VCS, formerly the Voluntary Carbon Standard is a standard for certifying carbon emissions reductions.Founded in 2005 by The Climate Group, International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and The World Economic Forum.

NETZERO helps businesses reach carbon neutrality and meet emission reduction targets through our Carbon Neutrality Assessments.
