Frequently Asked Questions
What is Net Zero?
A target of completely negating the amount of greenhouse gases produced by human activity, to be achieved by reducing emissions and implementing methods of absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The Net zero coalition by UN states aims to reduce emissions by 45% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. In order to do so, we need to maintain global warming to no more than 1.5°C.
What is Carbon negative?
The reduction of an entity's carbon footprint to less than neutral, so that the entity has a net effect of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere rather than adding it.
