Net zero

IChemE’s climate change position statement contained a commitment to develop plans for achieving net zero carbon emissions from IChemE’s direct operations globally by 2025, and publish greenhouse gas emissions data and progress against this target each year.

The Net Zero Working Group has been tasked with developing these plans. Their work focuses on agreeing a boundary definition and assets to be included in calculating IChemE’s carbon footprint, developing an action plan for reducing emissions, and providing a framework for IChemE to prepare annual emission reports.

The working group has input from members with experience in carbon footprinting, strategies for emissions reduction, carbon offsetting, auditing and reporting scheme requirements. The members are:
