Net Zero

Net Zero is the carbon equivalent of gold star. It means reducing all of your carbon emissions (even the ones you might not be directly responsible for). In our case, we need to consider the emissions from lighting and heating our restaurants, as well as feeding and rearing chickens. And it’s important that these plans are in line with climate science (see Science-Based Targets).

For any unavoidable emissions, they need to be permanently removed from the atmosphere which can be done through certified removal schemes. Getting a business to Net Zero is no mean feat, but we’ve committed to get it done by 2030.

  • Did you see Nando’s has pledged to become Net Zero by 2030?
  • Not gonna lie, I have no idea what that means.
  • Basically, they’re cutting down their carbon emissions as much as they can and working on removing the rest.
  • Oh, sweet.

What does net zero mean?

To be Net Zero means all of your carbon emissions are balanced AKA the amount of carbon you add is the same as the amount removed.

Is net zero energy possible?

Global Net Zero emissions are possible, but we need some big changes to get there. We currently rely heavily on coal, oil and gas so our energy systems would have to be completely transformed. We’d also need all countries to be on board with the Net Zero goal. 

What are net zero targets?

Net Zero targets are dates set by companies (or people) to reach Net Zero carbon emissions.



You've probably heard the term COP26 flying around a lot lately...

Climate Crisis

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you'll have heard that we're in a climate crisis...

Carbon Neutral

'Neutral' sounds a bit 'lemon and herb' on paper, but when it comes to carbon it's actually pretty spicy.

Carbon Offsetting

Carbon offsetting is one way people and businesses can balance...

Science-Based Targets

Who figures out how much carbon we need to cut...

Climate Justice

The climate crisis is unequal.


You know that feeling when you open the news and all you can see is forest fires, extreme floods and looming climate deadlines?

Systemic Change

When people talk about systemic change...

Carbon Footprint

Everyone has a carbon footprint.


This word gets thrown around a lot. 


Forests are basically mass air purifiers, removing carbon dioxide from the air...


Brands are all about reputation, and right now, sustainability is a hot topic.
