THE CHALLENGE

NET ZERO MEDIA

Is an end-to-end modular solution

OUR STORY

7 facts that explain Net Zero Media and the problem we solve…

FACT 1 :

Unprecedented and rising levels of CO2 emissions has created a climate crisis.

CO2 EMISSION

36B tonnes of CO2 were emitted in 2019 . the highest in the history of the planet.

PEAKING
EMISSIONS

In 2021, emissions are projected to exceed 2019 levels.

RISE IN LEVELS

In 2020, Covid-19 saw a reduction to 34B tonnes, which has already returned to pre Covid levels.

DEVASTATING IMPACTS

While growth in CO2 emissions is slowing , levels are yet to peak.CO2 emissions are accelerating climate change, with numerous and devastating implications.

FACT 2 :

The effect of climate change is dramatic and impacts all living things
1 : Increased respiratory disease from lower air quality.

2 : Lower farming yields impacting food production, availability and cost.

3 : Sea level rise of 1.5-2 feet, impacting approximately 1B people by 2050.
4 : Increased frequency of extreme heat waver. impacting up to 2.7B people.
5 : 100%+ increase in risk of flooding due to increased rainfall and snowfall.
6 : Loss of habitat for plants and animals leading to extinction for hundreds of species.
7 : 70-100% of coral reefs dead or degraded by 2100.
8 : Ice free Arctic summers.

FACT 3 :

Energy used by country is the single largest contributor to global CO2 emissions
  • Agriculture, forestry and land use represent 18.4% of global CO2 emissions.

  • Energy use in buildings represent 17.5% of global CO2 emissions.

  • Transport represents 16.2% of global CO2 emissions

  • Energy use in industry is the single largest sector and represents 24.2% of global GHC emissions.

FACT 4 :

The world is responding…

PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT

COMMITMENT

197 countries committed to reducing emissions via the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.

TARGET

The Paris Agreement establishes a target of limiting temperature increase to 1.5C.

NET ZERO OBJECTIVE

To reach the +1.5C target, a 45% reduction in global emissions is required by 2030, and a net zero objective by 2050.

PLANS

Only 75 of 197 governments have submitted plans for how they will reduce emissions between now and 2030.

Ambition Mechanism in the Paris Agreement

FACT 5 :

Investors and industry are leading the way…

LEADERSHIP POSITIONS

While a small number of governments have announced ambitious targets, investors, business and industry is taking a leadership position.

NET ZERO TARGETS

In 2021, emissions are projected to exceed 2019 levels.

SUSTAINABLE INVESTMENTS

In 2020, Covid-19 saw a reduction to 34B tonnes, which has already returned to pre Covid levels.

NET ZERO COMMITMENTS

While growth in CO2 emissions is slowing , levels are yet to peak. CO2 emissions are accelerating climate change, with numerous and devastating implications.

FACT 6 :

A global framework to categorise, measure and manage emissions has been established
Scope 1 – Emissions from sources that are directly owned or controlled by the company.
The GHG Protocola Categorises all emissions into three area, or ‘Scopes’.
Scope 2 – Emission that are indirect (includes emissions that result from the generation of electricity, heat or steam purchased by the company from a utility provider).
Scope 3- Emissions that are from sources not owned or directly controlled but related to company activities (i.e; all indirect emissions that do not fall into Scope 2).

Scope 3- Emissions that are from sources not owned or directly controlled but related to company activities (i.e; all indirect emissions that do not fall into Scope 2).

FACT 7 :

Scope 3 emissions are the largest and the hardest to quantify

Excluding Scope 3 emissions is problematic
