In the fight against climate change, more than 70 countries have set a net-zero target. However, industry continues to be the largest emitting sector, with over 40% of global emissions. A significant change is therefore required to meet global decarbonization targets.

There are many challenges which industry must overcome, not least the ability to monitor progress through effective verification and validation against regulatory requirements. For example, European Union taxation regulations require the verification of the carbon footprint of certain industries by an independent third party such as TÜV SÜD. 

The push towards decarbonization can be achieved by implementing effective carbon management practices. Carbon management is essential for any company that wants to stay competitive in today's economy.
