Some practical guidance for achieving Net Zero

How will your organisation achieve the Governments Net Zero Greenhouse Gases target? What does it mean for your organisation? Have you defined your objectives and scope? Are you sure that your current strategy will achieve the results you expect?

Posted on 02 April 2020.

We have had many conversations recently about Net Zero and how organisations are going to achieve it.  What has been obvious is that there is confusion and concern about how to start, about what needs to be done next and how the journey will be managed and funded.


To help organisations understand the process and clarify their thinking, JRP’s energy and sustainability teams have compiled a document ‘Practical guidance for achieving Net Zero’ which includes our ‘10 rules for a successful strategy’.

You can download a copy of this document from our website here.

Whilst organisations will be at different stages of their Net Zero journey and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution, the fundamentals about how to achieve net zero apply to every sector.   Credible strategies need to tackle both direct energy consumption (Scope 1 and 2 emissions) and indirect, wider supply chain emissions (Scope 3 emissions).

UK Government very precisely defines Net Zero and reaching it must be done using established global rules and standards for measuring and managing emissions.

Realistically, very few organisations have the knowledge and resources available in-house to achieve Net Zero without specialist help.  Sometimes organisations have developed a strategy but don’t know how to deliver it, often developing the strategy is still the first hurdle to jump.

JRP can use a combination of extensive specialist expertise in energy and carbon efficiency, sustainability strategies, data analysis and cutting-edge technologies, to work in partnership with you to achieve Net Zero. We will develop and deliver a comprehensive plan that optimises energy and resource use and progressively reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
