Green Initiative 2024

Understanding Carbon & GHG Emissions

Carbon neutral means that any CO2 released into the atmosphere from a company’s activities is balanced by an equivalent amount being removed.

Carbon negative means that activity goes beyond achieving net-zero carbon emissions to create an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Net-Zero carbon emissions mean that an activity releases net-zero carbon emissions into the atmosphere.
