What is Net Zero Footprint?

Net zero means cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible, with any remaining emissions re-absorbed from the atmosphere, by oceans and forests for instance (UN Climate Action).


At the COP 27 climate conference in Egypt, we need commitments that will deliver a reduction of emissions by 45 per cent by 2030 so we can reach net zero emissions by mid-century."  - ANTÓNIO GUTERRES, United Nations Secretary-General


Why Net Zero?

  • Preserve a livable planet
  • Limited Global Temperature to 1.5°C
  • Reduced emissions by 45% by 2030
  • Reach net zero by 2050 

How to achieve Net Zero?

It is in how we produce, consume, and move about. It is about replacing polluting coal, gas and oil-fired power with energy from renewable sources, such as wind or solar, would dramatically reduce carbon emissions.

Are we on track with Net Zero?

No. Commitments made by governments to date fall far short of what is required. Getting to net zero requires all governments to act by taking bold, immediate steps towards reducing emissions now.
