ExoAct launches programme to help businesses achieve net zero

EcoAct, the climate change consultancy, has launched a new programme aimed at helping guide businesses and organisations planning for a net zero future.

The A to Zero programme covers five modules to make sure businesses are fully addressing their response to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on climate change through transforming how they operate, innovate and contribute to limiting the most dangerous impacts of climate change.

Central to the A to Zero programme is the need to base corporate strategies on climate science, set robust and ambitious targets, significantly reduce emissions through innovation and implement plans to sink carbon emissions equivalent to those released.

Alongside this work, businesses will need to take responsibility for their emissions now by financing emissions removals and avoidance through carbon offsetting projects.

John Bamford, EcoAct UK head of advisory, said: “We need to take action to reduce and manage greenhouse emissions today if we want to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. 

“Political ambitions and guidance on this have been slow and the business sector, now seeing the demands for change from their investors, customers and the public, is stepping up to ensure that their operations are fit for a net zero future.”
