Carbon Neutrality

A zero-carbon economy in all sectors

Since COP21 and with the Paris Agreement, a growing number of nations and companies have committed themselves to combating climate change and pursuing the common goal of the Carbon Neutrality.

Global emissions reached their all-time high in 2010, amounting to 49 billion tons of CO2. An increase of 1 billion tons of CO2 equivalent per year released into the atmosphere.The need to completely decarbonise our economies is one of the key points of the "Global Warming of 1.5 ° C", the report published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Carbon neutrality is a fundamental prerequisite for stabilizing global temperatures. Without achieving the Net Zero Emissions goal, or the total elimination of net emissions of greenhouse gases produced, the concentration of CO₂ in our atmosphere will continue to rise, making it impossible to contrast global warming.

However, stronger climatic action is needed to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy in all sectors. Companies that want to undertake a path of "neutrality" or "offset" of emissions must rely on experts able to develop together with the company the realization of the best strategy for achieving CO2 neutrality.

Clarifying terms and definitions

CARBON NEUTRALITY
Net zero dioxide (CO2) emissions are acheived when anthropogenic CO2 emissions are balanced globally by enthropogenic CO2 removals over a specified period. Net zero CO2 emissions are referred to as carbon neutrality
NET-ZERO EMISSIONS
Net zero amissions are acheived when anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere are balanced by anthropogenic removals over a specified period. Where multiple greenhouse gases are involved, the quantification of net zero emissions depend on the climate metric chosen to compare emissions of different gases (such as global warming potential, global temperature change potential, and others, as well as the chosen time horizon)
CLIMATE NEUTRALITY
Concept of a state which human activities result in no effect on the climate system. Achieving such a state require balancing of residual emissions (carbon dioxide) removal as well as accounting for regional or local bio-geophysical effects of human activities that, for example, effect surface albedo or local climate
