Finding the right path towards Carbon Net Zero

Finding the right path to work towards Carbon Net Zero (CNZ) is becoming increasingly challenging and brings together many aspects of an estate. Our team of energy experts have created a guide for you to use to gauge where you are and how to make improvements towards Carbon Net Zero.

We recognise the challenges you may face and, whether you’re a large estate or a single building, we have routes to additional and specialist support that can lead you through the steps to achieve your CNZ goals. Our guide looks at how you can reduce your consumption, getting the best return on investment from just managing your energy more efficiently, before you even start to think about any capital investment such as; retrofits.

Watch the short video to find out more about how CCS can help you start your Carbon Net Zero journey. You can also read the script of the video.

What is Carbon Net Zero?


Carbon Net zero means that the UK’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions would be equal to or less than the emissions the UK removed from the environment.  This can be achieved by a combination of emission reduction and emission removal.

What is the 2050 target?


The UK has legislated to end its contribution to global warming by 2050, in effect reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 100%. The Clean Growth Strategy outlines a pathway for the public sector to halve non-traded emissions from buildings (direct heat and power, plus any fugitive emissions from coolants or refrigerants) by 2032.

What information is available to support customers now?


Organisations who also provide support include Salix, the Carbon Trust, the Energy Savings Trust, and The Better Buildings Partnership. The government also provides loans to public sector organisations through the Public Sector Energy Efficiency Loans Scheme, administered by Salix Finance, which provides interest-free loans to the public sector to make infrastructure improvements in order to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
