Net Zero

For a term that’s a relative newcomer to our everyday business language, net zero has gained a lot of traction in a short time.

A Google search, for example, brings up 1.47 billion results. And businesses of all sizes are feeling under pressure to have an official stance regarding their commitment to net zero.
