Net-zero is likely a buzzword you’ve heard a lot lately. It’s a popular movement that’s taking place among organizations as they work to achieve a balance between the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced and the amount of emissions removed from the atmosphere. The ultimate goal is the neutralize their carbon footprint resulting in no net emissions being released into the atmosphere. In order to achieve these lofty goals, organizations have to consider what improvements they can make in terms of energy efficiency, utilizing renewable energy sources, adopting sustainable technologies, and how to offset any remaining emissions through carbon capture and storage or investing in carbon offset projects.
