What is Decarbonisation?

Decarbonisation is the reduction of an organisation, society or economy’s carbon footprint from greenhouse gas emissions in order to reduce its impact on the climate. Decarbonisation is a process where economies or organisations move to become low-carbon economies with reduced reliance on fossil fuels, managed greenhouse gas emissions and developing greater climate resilience through decarbonisation strategies. Low-carbon is viewed as a precursor to establishing zero-carbon where no carbon emissions occur from a product, service or society, meaning no greenhouse gasses from burning fossil fuels and becoming fully reliant on renewable energy.
