Net zero

Net zero

Why net zero?

The UK Government declared a climate emergency and has amended the Climate Change Act to be net zero by 2050.

This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to lead the way, demonstrate commitment and contribution to a net zero society and take advantage of a market place that is becoming much more environmentally conscious.

What is net zero?

Net zero is about reducing your avoidable emissions as far as possible and then achieving zero-emissions by balancing your unavoidable use of fuels, energy, transport and processes that generate CO2 with projects that ‘offset’ the equivalent amount.

What does Ricardo offer?

Ricardo has a track record of helping companies with reporting, developing and implementing carbon reduction strategies and responding to environmental legislation. We’ll work with you to develop a strategy that meets your specific needs and ambitions, identify actions to take, and support them through to their delivery.

If your company or sector is looking at taking the next steps to respond to net zero (in the next 3-6 months) and needs further assistance we can provide:

  • A team of highly experienced carbon footprinting and emissions experts
  • A dedicated support team of carbon management consultants and analysts who can provide auditing, data measurement, carbon modelling and verification services in support of net zero
  • Insight into the key gaps between currently planned carbon reduction actions, and a net zero target, using our own in-house net zero emissions gap analysis tool
  • A cohesive strategy to future-proof your company, by taking action proactively before further legislation changes come into effect

Ricardo is an international consultancy that works at the forefront of carbon footprinting, net zero and assurance all over the world. We have been named as one of the Financial Times leading management consultancies on sustainability for the last two years running.
We determine the UK Government Conversion Factors for Company Reporting (Defra/BEIS factors) on an annual basis, and we work on the development of new reporting methodologies, for example, members of our team were involved in the development of the new GHG Protocol Scope 2 reporting guidance.

As a result of our long track record, stakeholders know and trust our brand.
