The world is in the grip of a climate crisis that’s been described as, “code red for humanity.” That’s not a line from a Hollywood movie; those are the words of the Secretary-General of the United Nations. When the UN is involved, you can probably guess that the situation is severe.

The message is clear: to avoid a catastrophic increase in global temperature levels, we need to cut our greenhouse gas emissions massively in the coming decades in order to reach “net zero”. The biggest onus is on the industries which burn fossil fuels, but every kind of business, large and small, needs to make significant changes in order to reduce its carbon footprint. This course explores the reasons why going net zero is so important, and how to get started on the right path.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Explain what “net zero” means and how it can be achieved
• Discuss the barriers toward going net zero
• Identify ways you can reduce your carbon footprint

Why take this course?

Nearly every nation on earth has signed up to the Paris Agreement, pledging to limit global warming to well under 2 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels. It’s going to take a complete overhaul of how we all go about our business, but a decarbonized world is possible. This course condenses a big and scary topic into something easier to digest, and offers guidance on how you, as an individual within a business, can be part of the solution.
