Following on from the UK Government’s world-leading net-zero carbon commitment, edie’s new spinoff podcast series, Net-Zero Business, hears from the trendsetters and trailblazers of responsible businesses.

Since the UK Government set it’s 2050 net-zero target into law, more and more businesses are attempting to get ahead of the political curve by strengthening carbon and energy strategies and pledging to become net-zero businesses well before the 2050 deadline.

The Net-Zero Business podcast is a monthly digest of shorter episodes, each featuring an in-depth interview with a sustainability lead at a business that has set a net-zero target recently. 

In the latest episode, sponsored by Inspired Energy, edie speaks to Nespresso UK’s managing director Guillaume Chesneau, who played an instrumental role in the development of the company’s plans to reach carbon neutrality by 2022. 

Nespresso has been carbon neutral across its Scope 1 (direct) and Scope 2 (indirect) emissions since 2017. But with 70% of its climate impact sitting in Scope 3 (indirect), the new target will require more ambition and action. 

Chesneau provides detail as to how Nespresso will combine direct reductions, insetting and offsetting to reach its new targets. He also explains how the net-zero and purpose-led business movements have evolved due to Covid-19. 

This episode also includes an exclusive interview with Inspired Energy’s client optimisation manager Emma Hird. She provides best-practice advice for optimising energy data on the road to net-zero. This section forms part of edie and Inspired Energy’s masterclass package on this topic, which also features a downloadable Explains report and a webinar that can be watched on-demand
