Why Are We Doing this?

Whilst we need to get to Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions in the coming decades, there are situations where it’s still impractical to completely avoid CO2 emissions, such as freight and international travel. In Pledge 6 we will ask for your long term Zero commitment, but this question ensures you set interim plans in motion rather than leaving it all for the future.

We can’t rely solely on offsetting, as this disincentives fixing the actual problem, there aren’t enough types of projects to take this approach for all our emissions globally, and offset projects don’t always function correctly long term.

Suitable answer(s) will depend on the operations of the organisation so we give the business a chance to identify suitable area(s) to focus on addressing initially.
