What is business decarbonisation?

Decarbonising your business or reducing your business’s carbon footprint means taking decisive actions to reduce or eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from your operations.

This may involve shifting to renewable energy sources such as solar or wind, improving energy efficiency by upgrading buildings and manufacturing processes, adopting sustainable transportation, reducing waste, and choosing sustainable materials and products. It’s about making your business more eco-friendly, meeting regulatory requirements, saving costs, and enhancing your reputation with suppliers, clients and employees as a sustainable, responsible organisation.

“The fight against climate change is everyone’s, and businesses are in a unique position to lead the charge.”

Paul Lewis, CEO, Carbon Credentials
