What is Net Zero Emissions?

Thawing icebergs in the ocean.

My local paper, today, has a story about the U.S. and Canada working towards net-zero emissions by 2050; and it got me thinking, as everything does. What does achieving net-zero emissions? How is it done? and What does it achieve? Let’s chat.

As you can see it’s not as simple as it sounds, but it’s easier to do then it looks. Whether you’re a consumer, business or other organisation, we can all do something to help offset carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions.

If you’re interested in purchasing offsets as an individual, business, or other; check out Purchasing Carbon Offsets Guide for Canadians. Produced by the David Suzuki Foundation and The Pembina Institute, you’ll find a table on page 10 that provides a list of vendors along with assessed offset results.
