It’s been well documented for years that climate change is having a disastrous effect on the globe, contributing to disrupting natural systems, rising sea levels and much more.
According to the World Meteorological Organization, evidence suggests climate change is responsible for the globe getting hotter. Studies have shown the warmest 20 years on record have been recorded over the last 22 years, with the two of the warmest years on record occurring as recently as 2015 and 2018.
To try and combat climate change, governmental action and environmental laws have been implemented in several countries which has included introducing Net Zero.
Okay, What is Net Zero?
So what does Net Zero exactly mean, well Net Zero is a phrase coined to introduce the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere. By achieving Net Zero, this simply means achieving the correct balance between the greenhouse gases put into the atmosphere and those taken out.
Along with looking to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the UK became the world’s first major economy to set a target of being net zero by 2050.
How can we look to reduce climate change?
Ultimately, we can look to reduce climate change by lowering the emissions we are sending into the atmosphere, from activities such as industrial processes, power generation, transport and remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere.
