Approaching Sustainability: Progress Toward Carbon-Neutrality in Life Sciences
Industries around the world are working to reach carbon neutrality. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions or removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, companies can effectively make up for the emissions they produce elsewhere. Think of it like planting a tree in one place for every tree you cut down elsewhere. In theory, if you plant as many trees as you cut down, you will reach “net-zero carbon” and the ecosystem will remove carbon at its normal rate, creating an overall drop in global greenhouse gasses.
