What is an emissions baseline?

In order to travel to on the road to net zero emissions, organisations need to know their carbon footprint. Therefore, this footprint should encompass all scopes to give the most comprehensive impression of the organisation’s environmental impact. Here is a little summary of what scopes are.   Reminder: What are

What is a carbon footprint?

Understanding climate change and its implications can be overwhelming. Over the last few months, the Plannet Zero blog has been shedding light on the role of carbon dioxide in these conversations . But where does one start their own journey to net zero? What is a carbon footprint? Your net


Guide to methane emissions

In a previous post, we provided readers with an overview of what greenhouse gases are, how they impact our environment, and why we focus on carbon dioxide in climate discussions. However, there is another GHG that is a cause of concern that many climatologists have been talking about: methane. Where

Introductory guide to greenhouse gases

In the 1820s, Joseph Fourier calculated that, based on the distance between the Sun and the Earth, the average temperature should be minus 18 degrees Celsius. This is far from the actual global temperature average that is estimated at 13.9 degrees Celsius. So, Fourier hypothesised about the Earth’s capacity to

What is the mandate for ‘net zero’?

Countries across the world are in the process of making huge commitments to the attainment of ‘net zero’ emissions. These changes are in response to the increasing challenge of climate change, however, experts are concerned that simply reducing carbon emissions will not be enough to stop climate change, but that

The different the types of carbon credits

What are carbon credits?

Carbon credits, also known as carbon offsets, enable companies to compensate for their current carbon footprint, after first having reduced their emissions through changes to processes and investment in renewable and sustainable energy. The greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced through operations and product production are then offset by the purchase
