Love this from Planet Mark, who are doing a Net Zero tour ahead of COP.
What do you think? Fair interpretation of Met Zero?
Perhaps if you don’t understand Scope of emissions may not be able to contribute. Here’s an explanation:
Scope 1: what you directly burn (e.g gas for heating, fuel for driving) Scope 2: the emissions to inherit from direct use of energy (e.g train journeys, Carbon from using electricity)
Scope 3: What someone else has emitted in the manufacture of products you’ve used (e.g. Carbon from manufacturing/delivering computer or car).
Scoping of emissions is useful as it indicates control over those carbon emissions with some being out of our control. What they’re suggesting is that we should get everything directly in our control to as near zero as possible and then we qualify for net zero.
