Why certification is needed

All companies will need to embark on the journey to Net Zero. We believe the sooner you do this, the better.

During your journey, the biggest contributor to your overall carbon footprint is likely to be your supply chain.

As a supplier, you have a direct impact on the carbon footprint of your customers as your suppliers have a direct impact on your carbon footprint.

Companies are already asking suppliers to provide a Net Zero Reduction Plan.  Also, government NOW require a Net Zero Reduction Plan to tender for medium to large contracts.

This is just the start and ALL companies will need a Net Zero Reduction Plan as standard business practice.

A Net Zero Reduction Plan requires you to understand your actual carbon footprint first and then you can make a plan to get to Net Zero that is both realistic and credible.  This is where Net Zero International helps by providing you with all the tools you need plus a certificate from a UN approved partner that checks your carbon footprint data, as an independent party, and confirms its authenticity.

What does the certificate do?

Your certificate does 3 things:

  • Confirms your actual current carbon footprint
  • Confirms you have a Net Zero Reduction Plan
  • Enables you to show your commitment to achieve Net Zero to your customers and any other stakeholders
