Net Zero Carbon Foundations

Confused about climate change terminology? Concerned about the impact of the built environment but don't know where to start? This course is for you

Climate change has been called an existential threat to humanity. Climate crises have been declared around the world. Nations, states, organisations, and assets are all committing to a pathway to net zero. But what does this all mean and why is it important?

  • What exactly is net-zero'? How is it achieved?
  • How can asset owners and operators work towards this?
