Net zero carbon refers to achieving an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions taken out of the atmosphere. Achieving net zero is required to meet the Paris Agreement, which aims to keep global temperatures below a 1.5°C rise above pre-industrial levels. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), there is less than 12 years to contain global warming within the 1.5°C target.
To achieve the scale of change needed, action must be taken now to reduce emissions and lay the foundations for the longer-term transformation required.
NFFN have created a practical guide for farmers to help achieve net zero targets. We hope you find this useful.
