Zero Net emissions by 2030
As a leading contributor to United Nations climate research the Met Office knows first-hand how greenhouse gas emissions are impacting our climate.
We will have completed our Net Zero journey when our net emissions of harmful greenhouse gases from our operational activities and supply chain have either been fully removed or completely offset.
Our emissions are measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the most common greenhouse gas, or an equivalent (CO2e) amount of other greenhouse gases such as methane, nitrous oxide or hydrofluorocarbons. Our total CO2e emissions are often referred to as our carbon footprint.
