Net Zero Jargon Buster: carbon neutral vs net zero


Don’t know the difference between carbon neutral and net zero? Cundall’s Simon Wyatt explains it all here

Construction firms and projects often make claims to be net zero carbon when in fact they are merely carbon neutral. If you don’t know the difference, in this extended recording from our Building Talks Net Zero podcast, Simon Wyatt at Cundall explains all.

And in a wide-ranging interview over 25 minutes Wyatt also discusses the political context of the last few years and the amazing pace of change coming from the likes of the GLA and the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI). 

Wyatt, who is our net zero jargon buster for the series, argues strongly that companies aiming to be net zero align to Science Based Targets rather than opting to off-set emissions as a first step.
