Guidance for Pledge to Net Zero Signatories

In order to raise the bar in the environmental services sector, signatories to the Pledge to Net Zero shall commit to:

  1. Set and commit to deliver a greenhouse gas target in line with either a 1.5°C (encouraged) or well below 2°C climate change scenario – covering buildings and travel as a minimum.

  2. Publicly report greenhouse gas emissions and progress against this target each year.

  3. Publish one piece of research/thought-leadership each year on practical steps to delivering an economy in line with climate science and in support of net zero carbon. Alternatively, signatories may choose to provide mentoring and support for smaller signatory companies in setting targets, reporting and meeting the requirements of the pledge.

But, you probably already know this. The question now is, "how does my organisation make a pledge and what detail is required from us?" We very much hope that the below guidance document will be able to assist:
