Climate action and net zero

We measure your carbon footprint, we help you set targets and we create an effective decarbonisation plan for delivering on net zero. Our aim is to guide you through complexity with an approach that is effective, achievable, concise and clear.

What is net zero?
Net zero means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions drastically and remove unavoidable emissions from the atmosphere using carbon removals (actions which take greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere)

Why is it important?
According to the latest UN IPCC report, achieving a net zero economy is the only way to ensure a liveable planet for future generations

What organisations should do about it?
Organisations around the world have committed to net zero – measuring their carbon footprint, setting short-term and long-term science-based targets and developing plans to deliver on decarbonisation.

Services include:

  • Carbon footprinting and greenhouse gas accounting following the Greenhouse Gas Protocol
  • Development and improvement of Scope 3 measurement – including embodied carbon of materials, supplier engagement and using life-cycle data
  • Development of carbon reduction targets using the Science Based Targets Initiative methodology and support with their validation
  • Assurance and verification of greenhouse gas inventories
  • Decarbonisation plan development including advice on the use of carbon offsets and removals
  • Corporate disclosures and reporting – including Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting and TCFD disclosures
  • Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme assessment (we are registered ESOS Lead Assessors)
  • Energy auditing and supporting training


Following the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, our carbon experts will assist your organisation in calculating its greenhouse gas inventory.

Target setting

Following the Science-based Target Initiative’s standards we calculate your near-term and net-zero target, in line with the latest science.

Decarbonisation and disclosure

We develop a bespoke detailed decarbonisation plan for your organisation to deliver on net zero. We also provide disclosure services including sustainability reporting, Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting and TCFD disclosures.

What our clients say

Peter’s leadership and his team’s high-quality support have driven us forward over the last few years, developing and driving a range of initiatives (such as the freezer challenge, the development of our ActNow staff group and a significant improvement in sustainability comms). We wouldn’t be where we are now without them.

Simon Francis
ICR Director of Estates and Facilities

Peter has a unique set of skills being a technical expert whilst able to fashion this knowledge into fantastic training content, as most recently demonstrated by the Pathways to Net Zero course he’s authored. It’s through his years and varied experiences of delivering quality training and consultancy he’s been able to develop such a rounded set of content.
