As the planet continues to get hotter, the need for action becomes more urgent with each passing year.
Net zero is one of the key goals that governments and businesses all over the world have adopted in the face of the climate crisis. If you want to cut your company's carbon emissions and fulfil your environmental commitments, read on to find out how ISO Accelerator can help with this.
What does 'net zero' mean?
According to the United Nations, net zero means "cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible, with any remaining emissions re-absorbed from the atmosphere, by oceans and forests for instance".
The UK is currently aiming to achieve net zero by the year 2050. Many other countries - including China and the USA, as well as the European Union - have also set net zero targets, as have thousands of businesses worldwide.
Minimising carbon emissions in every possible area of life will be the key to hitting net zero (although other activities, such as planting trees, can help to offset emissions). If you are dedicated to shrinking your organisation's carbon footprint, it's not enough to ensure that your own business practices are environmentally friendly; you should also make sure you're working with eco-conscious suppliers.
What we're doing to help
ISO Accelerator is an environmentally-friendly organisation. We carry out 100% of our audits remotely, and we estimate that by taking 25 auditors off the road, our revolutionary online certification process has saved approximately 185 metric tonnes of CO2.
From day one, ISO Accelerator was set up to work remotely. Unlike other certification bodies, we do not have large offices that use up lots of electricity in the form of heating and lighting; nor do we have a fleet of company cars to fuel. We simply use up-to-date communication methods and remote ISO assessments, eliminating the need for on-site audits.
If you need ISO certification for your business - or if you want to save money and the planet by switching from your current certification body to ISO Accelerator - please don't hesitate to contact us.
