Going Net Zero? Are you just looking at the tip of the iceberg?
Posted on 23 November 2020.
The UK has committed to a 100% reduction in carbon emissions relative to the levels in 1990, to be achieved by 2050. There is, sadly, however, the inevitable ‘greenwashing’ by some organisations that claim to have already achieved Net Zero, or to be well on the way. These claims make headlines but on further analysis, it seems that the strategies, plans and ambitions of these organisations focus on scopes 1 and 2 and conveniently place scope 3 emissions ‘out of scope’.
