Net Zero & Carbon Accounting for Businesses

To avoid a world level catastrophe, global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must be slashed in half by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.

Most of us have tried to eradicate disposable plastics and create energy saving options where possible but what does it really take to get to net zero in your business?

This is where many businesses remain clueless.

D&A Business have teamed up with leading Net Zero and sustainability training experts the Verdancy Group and Digital Bricks to help businesses understand the implications of impending legislation requiring them to reduce and report their carbon emissions.

Why Businesses need to act now.

From 30th September 2021, if you wish to bid on large government contracts you MUST have a Net Zero Carbon Reduction Plan in place.

This is just the start.

Businesses are also starting to demand a Net Zero Carbon Reduction Plan and, without one in place, will start to reduce your chances of gaining new business.
It is not a question of IF but WHEN you start implementing your Net Zero Carbon Reduction Plan.
