Getting to net zero
We're going to get to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 - a great ambition, and the kind of sustainability leadership for which we've been calling for decades. But it's a huge challenge, and currently, our practice and policy mean we are still miles off achieving our national objectives.
Climate change is the biggest threat we face and achieving net zero will be tough. We will need all the technological solutions available to us to reduce emissions, capture atmospheric carbon and adapt to climate change impacts. We also need national & international political backing & collaboration and a massive increase in verified environmental offset projects.

Avieco is a market-leading, independent sustainability consultancy owned by the people in it. Inspired by the French word for life, "la vie", and the ecosystem we all depend on, our name reflects both the strength and breadth of our ambition for a sustainable future that works for all.
I was impressed with the thoroughness and level of detail that our data set was analysed in. Presenting an extensive data set in an easy to use format was of great value in communicating the outcome of the work internally, and prioritising areas of the supply chain for future action.
Alan Sweeting, Global Health, Safety and Environment Senior Manager, Allen & Overy LLP
Avieco supported us in collating and organising data to develop a robust risk assessment process. They have been easy to work with, responsive to our requirements and pragmatic in their solutions.
Gijs Voskuilen, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Bunzl
Avieco has been the preferred environmental consultant since the beginning of our journey to become a sustainable company. Dentsu Aegis has worked with Avieco’s experts on various areas, such as carbon footprint reporting and assurance support, and recently also advised us how to switch our global network to renewable electricity. The team’s expertise on environmental sustainability is impressive, and the work delivered is always of highest standard.
Lars Holm, Global Senior Manager CSR, Dentsu Aegis Network
Avieco informatively led us through the processes needed to reduce our carbon footprint. With their clear and concise advice we have been able to effectively reduce our energy and waste levels. Avieco made the complex notion of energy efficiency into a manageable and achievable reality
Nigel Pink, Group Engineering Manager, Dominos UK & Ireland Ltd
Avieco delivered exactly the workshop we needed to get our sustainability team and regional leads on the same page when it comes to ‘market-based’ reporting. It’s a challenging area to tackle for a global business – particularly when we operate in a number of markets where there is little or no choice in terms of energy purchasing. Avieco has given us the knowledge and tools to ensure we get our disclosures right – they really exceeded my expectations for what we could achieve in one afternoon!
Dr Julia Rowe, Group Sustainability Advisor, Johnson Matthey
We get that change is not easy. But we must be brave, challenge old ways, set new habits, embrace new thinking.
