Blue Marble is thrilled to launch the second issue of Net Zero journal to coincide with COP28, the annual United Nations climate summit taking place this week.
As governments, businesses and organisations meet in Dubai to chart a mutual course of action to dramatically reduce global emissions, the journal is packed with on-the-ground information to help businesses here in the UK reduce their carbon impact on their way to net zero.
We also catch up with Clara Stone, who is the co-founder of a groundbreaking new event called LeZero, an international carbon-zero motor rally delivering petrol-head fun without the pollution.
The journal includes a 20-minute guide to carbon offsetting, plus you’ll discover how Blue Marble has been able to help businesses calculate their greenhouse gas emissions, obtain life cycle assessments (LCAs) of their products, put together an environmental product declaration (EPD) and calculate the impact of their supply chains.
As we launch this second issue of Net Zero journal, increasing numbers of businesses are implementing their net zero strategy. At Blue Marble we’re seeing it in action as companies build long-term value into their businesses by investigating their supply chains and making appropriate changes. Similarly, an awareness of a product’s environmental impact is now being woven into every level of its design.
This kind of future-proofing is essential, even for those businesses not yet impacted by carbon-focused legislation. As part of this businesses are using carbon offsetting, yet this can often be problematic, which is why we have included a handy guide to the essentials you need to know.
As procurement and tender requirements give more weight to environmental credentials, access to robust carbon accounting is essential. Fortunately, data and reporting is becoming more accurate, helping us advise clients on the most effective solutions.
There’s a long way to go on our shared journey to net zero, but the strategy is taking effect and every business is now involved. If you’d like our help with your business’ journey, get in touch here.
