Webinar : Getting your company ready for net zero (21/6)
Insights on emissions reduction and removals, in line with science
Implementing a net zero strategy is a complex process that requires a deep understanding of the concepts of net zero, carbon dioxide removals, and offsets. This webinar will give companies the keys to define a credible net zero strategy in line with scientific principles and ambitious goals, while avoiding the pitfalls of greenwashing.
The objectives of this webinar are to:
- Clarify the concepts of net zero, carbon dioxide removals and offset.
- Enable companies to understand the implications of implementing a net-zero strategy.
- Demystify the process and provide guidance on how to define a credible net zero strategy in line with science and ambitious goals.
This webinar is for people who:
- Want to stay informed about the latest advancements in sustainability and carbon footprint reduction and wish to expand their current expertise.
- Seek to understand the benefits of taking proactive actions (and the risks associated with inaction).
- Aim to effectively communicate the implications of implementing a net-zero strategy to decision makers in their organization.
- Are in search of practical and actionable solutions applicable within their organization.

Net zero by 2050 is the new norm in Europe. Companies can play an active role.
Net zero is not just a new buzzword, it is a step change for our economy and society. To reach net zero by 2050 at European level, we need to reduce drastically our greenhouse gas emissions but also to capture atmospheric carbon dioxide to make up for residual carbon emissions.
In this context, companies can contribute to the global achievement of net zero. Their contribution will primarily be to reduce emissions but could also be to support the carbon removal from the atmosphere and store it permanently.Share
