    The benefits of working towards Net Zero

    The United Kingdom stands as a global pioneer by committing to eliminate its contribution to global warming, setting a target of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 (The Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy - HM Government, 2021).

    For the UK to reach this target, all businesses need to improve their environmental performance. According to the Net Zero Review 2020, achieving net zero is essential for long-term prosperity (HM Treasury, 2020), so it is vital businesses start to measure their carbon use and develop action plans to reduce their reliance on all Greenhouse gas emissions.

    Taking action on climate change provides a host of opportunities for local businesses, such as creating jobs, lowering costs, and attracting new clients or investors.

    All businesses, however small, produce carbon emissions, so this is an excellent opportunity for Plymouth businesses, at whatever stage of the Net Zero journey to seize the opportunities presented by tackling climate change.


    This support is available completely free to anyone located within the Plymouth County Council. If you're unsure, you can check by inputting your postcode into the Council Checker.
