Carbon neutrality

What is carbon neutrality?

Carbon neutrality means having a balance between emitting carbon and absorbing carbon from the atmosphere.Carbon neutrality refers to net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in which it aims to balance the emission of CO2 with its removal so as to stop its increase in the atmosphere.

Carbon dioxide emissions account for 82 per cent of global warming, with the rest coming mainly from the much more potential greenhouse gases methane and nitrous oxide.

Carbon neutrality will slowly reduce global warming and solve our energy crisis, with accompanying benefits to air quality, ecological recovery, and landscape beautification and also Industrial revolution that would mark an important milestone in human development for carbon neutrality.

The term net zero is increasingly used to describe more comprehensive commitment to decarbonization and climate action, moving towards carbon neutrality by including more activities under the scope of indirect emissions and direct emission, and often including a science-based target on emissions reduction.

What are the solutions for carbon neutrality?

Carbon-neutral status can be achieved in multiple ways by reducing the amount of carbon by moving towards energy sources and industry processes that produce no greenhouse gases, thereby transitioning to a zero-carbon economy. Shifting towards the use of renewable energy such as wind, geothermal, and solar power, zero-energy systems like passive daytime radiative cooling, as well as nuclear power, reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

One way to implement carbon-neutral products is by making these products cheaper and more cost effective than carbon positive fuels. Various companies have pledged to become carbon neutral or negative by 2050.

Balancing remaining carbon dioxide emissions with carbon offsets is the process of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere to make up for emissions elsewhere. If the total greenhouse gases emitted is equal to the total amount avoided or removed, then the two effects cancel each other out and the net emissions are neutral.

How to achieve carbon neutrality?

Carbon neutrality refers to achieving a net carbon footprint of zero. The term is often applied to an entire organisation , but can also be applied to a product or activity. Since it is not possible for most organisations or individuals to completely eliminate all GHG emissions associated with their activities and products, carbon neutrality is typically premised on the idea of using external GHG reductions to balance emissions that cannot readily be eliminated. Carbon offset credits are the primary tool for achieving such reductions.

Tracking and analysing the emissions that need to be eliminated, and how it can be done, is an important step in the process of achieving carbon neutrality, as it establishes the priorities for where action needs to be taken and progress can begin being monitored.

To be considered carbon neutral, an organisation must reduce its carbon footprint to zero. Determining what to include in the carbon footprint depends upon the organisation and the standards they are following. Generally, direct emissions sources must be reduced and offset completely, while indirect emissions from purchased electricity can be reduced with renewable energy purchases.

Direct emissions include all pollution from manufacturing, company owned vehicles and reimbursed travel, livestock and any other source that is directly controlled by the owner. Indirect emissions include all emissions that result from the use or purchase of a product.

Another method is Carbon offsetting is the practice of removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere equivalent to the emissions generated by other activities. This is often done by paying “projects that either emit fewer emissions at source, such as cleaner energy production, or remove them from the atmosphere, such as forestry schemes. This aims to neutralise a certain volume of greenhouse gas emissions by funding activities which are expected to cause an equivalent reduction elsewhere, for example, with paid-for ecosystem services, such as blue carbon.
