What is a Net Zero Strategy?

The worsening climate crisis and the evolving regulatory landscape is driving a significant number of businesses globally towards Net Zero strategies, including carbon emissions quantification and emissions reduction objectives. With many countries setting reduction targets, such as Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050, businesses are looking ahead and setting Net Zero targets of their own.

A corporate Net Zero strategy aims to reduce business operational emissions as much as possible, and combined with carbon offsetting balances overall emissions to zero. At McGrady Clarke, our Net Zero strategies fully align with global targets and climate science such as the Paris Agreement.

Net Zero Targets: Reducing Carbon Emissions

Setting and achieving Net Zero targets is crucial to avoiding the detrimental effects of global warming. By measuring and reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in keeping with the latest climate science, businesses can contribute towards the global sustainability effort, stay ahead of incoming regulation, inspire positive change and benefit from improved reputation. There are three key steps involved in creating a Net Zero strategy:

  • Assess your baseline carbon emissions, including the wider supply chain
  • Set ambitious but achievable reduction targets in short- medium- and long-term time horizons
  • Follow actionable carbon reduction recommendations to achieve your Net Zero goals

Net Zero Implementations

We will work collaboratively with you to ensure all recommendations and targets are feasible for your business. We cover reduction actions across the entire value chain, from fuel usage in buildings and fleet, to employee behaviours and policy, to improving the sustainability of your suppliers.

We have a dedicated team of decarbonisation experts and implementation partners to assist in actioning our recommendations, such as provision of solar PV and renewables, building and machinery upgrades, monitoring systems implementation and behavioural change programmes. Green optimisation of the supply chain is the most challenging aspect of Net Zero reductions. Our supply chain specialists will work with you to capture reliable emissions information and instigate change within your supply chain, providing guidance on setting supplier sustainability targets and green procurement policies.
