Why is the toolkit asking me to commit to net zero by 2040?

Businesses must rapidly mobilise ahead of government targetsto allow breathing space in the face of potential delays. Plus, decarbonising sooner will help us collectively buy precious time in slowing the heating of the planet, softening the effects of the unfolding catastrophe. 

The NetZeroToolkit  breaks this commitment down for you and will ask you to set targets for the next 12m, the next 5yrs, to have halved your emissions by 2030 and to be net zero by 2040.
