Sustainable Business & future Net Zero Standard
As a business who are committed to working with business to realise a sustainable, low carbon and cost-effective future. We are proud to be a solution partner for The future Net Zero standard to compliment our service in simplifying, standardising and supporting businesses on their net-zero journey.
The UK Government has signed you and your business to 2050 net zero targets. In June 2019, parliament passed legislation requiring the government to reduce the UK’s net emissions of greenhouse gases to Net Zero by 2050.
What does ‘net zero' mean? Net zero refers to achieving a balance between the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere.
With the focus on larger organisations historically through ESOS and SECR and in speaking to SME and Mid-Market organisations we knew very early on there is a need for a simple digital solution to benchmark, monitor and manage your organisational footprint.
Sustainable Business Services selected the future Net Zero standard with CBN Expert as it provides a cost effective, easy to use dashboard that allows SME's to take action, measure and report on their carbon footprint.
The first step in developing a net-zero strategy is to understand your current position as your benchmark to develop targets and future strategies against.
How can we help your business?
Working as your sustainability partner, Sustainable Business Services will manage your entire journey from initial consultation to continued monitoring, reporting and reductions following a 5 step plan;
