What does net zero mean?

Net zero means consumers and citizens working in their communities to reach a carbon-neutral lifestyle and economy. It means we can have both a sustainable environment and economic prosperity.

What does “impact” mean?

It means matching our abilities to the right opportunities so that our actions have collective impact, from influencing friends to supporting green initiatives to lobbying politicians. The opportunities are plentiful and the need is real.
