STEP ONE | Set Your Goals
Setting goals is the first step every organization should take on its decarbonization journey. An organization's goals and motivation to reach them can vary widely in complexity and ambition.
STEP TWO | Understand Your Emissions
After your goals are set, your organization must gain a comprehensive, accurate picture of the sources of its emissions as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
STEP THREE | Reduce Your Emissions
This is the most important step on your decarbonization journey — there is no substitute for action.
Your organization must take concrete steps to reduce its emissions, such as sourcing renewable energy, improving technology, electrifying processes, and engaging key suppliers and partners.
STEP FOUR | Offset Your Emissions
To complement its decarbonization efforts, your organization can offset its unreduced emissions as it progresses toward its long-term net zero goal.
Your organization can accomplish this by purchasing high-quality carbon credits created by high-impact climate projects.
STEP FIVE | Measure and Report Your Progress
To complete the last step in the continuous decarbonization cycle, your organization should accurately measure and report its emissions to ensure it's on track to meet its long-term goals.
Your organization can disclose its emissions through CDP’s Climate Change Questionnaire and publish its data in its annual reports.
