Take our 10-minute survey on climate targets and offsetting

Nearly 60 banks collectively provided $705.8bn to firms involved in in the fossil fuel sector last year.

The 10-minute online survey is primarily targeted at in-house sustainability/CSR/energy professionals as well as managers who hold some level of responsibility for their organisation’s strategy in these areas and will be used to help shape edie’s content moving forward. The survey can, however, be taken by all readers and individual responses kept anonymous.

Results of the survey will be used to help form edie’s next report on the state of corporate sustainability in the UK.***

Now in its third edition, edie’s Sustainable Business Tracker provides a quarterly progress update on the state of corporate sustainability and the net-zero transition across all major industries in the UK.

The survey is primarily targeted at in-house sustainability/CSR/net-zero managers and practitioners, along with other professionals who are helping to shape or deliver their organisation’s sustainability and decarbonisation strategy.

This survey aims to provide a snapshot of corporate approaches to net-zero, analysing whether new guidance provided by external frameworks such as the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) are robust enough to enable the transition to a net-zero future.

Individual responses to this survey are kept anonymous and contact information will not be shared externally.

This survey opened on 17 April 2024 and will remain open for around three weeks.

*** Developed exclusively for edie Members, these quarterly reports are based on an in-depth survey of business leaders, sustainability and net-zero professionals. Each report in the series will include a sector-based supplement – a dedicated section which focuses on the nuanced drivers, challenges and opportunities facing a particular sector.

    Congratulations for your successful activities in sustainable development and environmental protection.

    Not now involved with university policy, but was driven by student preference. If students would only enrol at a university delivering climate change action, the senior management would soon galvanise!

  3. John Barton says:

    The nature of carbon offsetting is all-important.

    Paying for other countries to use more efficient or renewable energy, or to protect rainforests might be good things in themselves but SHOULD NOT count as carbon offsetting.

    Carbon removal technologies, for example direct air capture or even accelerated rock weathering, are far more expensive but SHOULD count as carbon offsetting.
