What is Carbon Zero?
Carbon Zero is a commitment to achieving an overall carbon zero world. This means that any Carbon released into the atmosphere in the form of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) must be removed from the atmosphere in the same amount to keep the levels of CO2 stable.
Some activities unavoidably release Carbon into the atmosphere – any process that involves burning, for example, will release Carbon dioxide into the air.
Other activities actively remove Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere – the most obvious of these is plants growing, they aspirate (or breathe in) Carbon Dioxide, use sunlight and photosynthesis to remove the Carbon and then respirate (or breathe out) Oxygen.
