Plan ahead

Knowing where to start, and how to progress through a net zero project can be daunting. What do you measure, how do you measure, and what do you report? If you’re scratching your head and wondering what your first step is, then our net zero journey calculator maps are for you.

Implementation

Project net zero has joined forces with a range of approved net zero implementation partners from on-site heat generators to carbon offsetting providers.

NET ZERO GUIDE

Top 3 Net Zero FAQs

The scientific evidence is clear: to prevent the most devastating effects of climate change, greenhouse gas emissions need to be reduced to zero by second half of this century.

The main goal is to stop producing emissions, but this will be impossible in some hard-to-abate sectors, such as aviation and shipping. So emissions will need to be removed from the atmosphere (known as carbon removal) to compensate. The result is “net zero” – an overall balance between greenhouse gas emissions produced, and emissions removed.

The Grantham Research Institute has a helpful analogy for this:

“Like a bath with the taps on, an approach to achieving this balance can either be to turn down the taps (the emissions) or to drain an equal amount down the plug (removals of emissions from the atmosphere, including storage for the emissions such as ‘carbon sinks’).”

“I’ve starred in a lot of science fiction movies and, let me tell you something, climate change is not science fiction. This is a battle in the real world, it is impacting us right now.”
