Your net zero carbon roadmap
Whether you are just starting to plan your journey to net zero carbon emissions, or already have a roadmap in place and want expertise to deliver your ambitions, Ricardo has the expertise to help.
Over the last 30 years, we’ve helped thousands of organisations across the world save millions of tonnes of carbon. And our net zero planning expertise - across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions - is already helping organisations across a wide range of sectors. This includes NHS Scotland, the Ministry of Defence, Water UK, the Scotch Whisky Association and businesses in the oil and gas, food and drink, airport and facilities management sectors.
Our net zero consultancy expertise can help you to decarbonise too.
'Ricardo has assisted the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) in assessing what the transition to net zero means to the scotch whisky industry. This work will help to inform the SWA in our review of the sector’s wide-reaching environmental strategy. Ricardo helped us to identify the technology options that can be deployed to reach net zero by 2045 and identify what enabling policies will be required to support that transition.'
Dagmar Droogsma, Director of Industry, SWA
How to reach net zero carbon emissions
Your journey to net zero shouldn’t cost you money. When planned for effectively, it should boost your organisation’s success with energy savings, supply chain security, enhanced employee engagement and improved value propositions.
Getting to net zero isn’t the challenge. Getting to net zero in a way that minimises your costs and maximises your savings, at the speed required to meet the expectations of your stakeholders, is the challenge.
With Ricardo’s tried and tested five-step approach to net zero (outlined below), you will be confident, from your board room to the shop floor, that your roadmap will get you to net zero in the timeframe expected by your investors, employees and customers - in ways that minimise costs and maximise savings.
You will have a roadmap for the introduction of decarbonisation measures and investments that will result in long-term sustainable business operations.
'Achieving net zero is a really big challenge for the NHS, but one that we are tackling head on. Ricardo’s depth of technical understanding of NHS services and key areas of focus for us, such as patient care and transport, was really important to help us develop a roadmap for our boards that is achievable, although challenging.'
Kathryn Dapre, Head of Energy & Sustainability, NHS Scotland
