Tools Library

Welcome to the Net Zero Tools Library!

To help organisations meet their net zero targets we have collected a library of hundreds of free practical tools for businesses, policy makers and organisations of every size and across every sector. The library includes tools for measuring greenhouse gas emissions, developing net zero strategies, refining climate justice approaches to net zero, reducing emissions and supply chain emissions, identifying quality offset projects, reporting progress, forming partnerships and more.  We have versions of the tool library available on the SME Climate Hub, the BCorp Climate Collective and the Race to Zero.  *We have attempted to contact all tool providers but if you would like us to remove your tool from our library please don’t hesitate to get in touch. And for any additional questions about the tool library you can reach us at: netzero@ouce.ox.ac.uk.

You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Find measurement tools relevant to your business to calculate your current emissions and your progress towards net zero.

 

 

Integrating climate action into your business strategy is vital for the long-term growth and resilience of your business. These tools will help you to integrate climate in your mission, value proposition and solutions, and plan your journey to net zero.

 

 

 

 

Own emissions include all the emissions “inside the company walls”. The tools provide support in reducing emissions from sources such as buildings, vehicles, energy and business travel.

 

 

 

 

Value chain emissions include all the emissions “outside the company walls”, normally representing the largest share of a company’s total footprint. The tools provide support in reducing emissions from sources such as purchasing of goods and materials, usage of products and transportation.

Verified carbon credit projects can help accelerate climate transformation and can be used as a complement to cutting your own emissions in half before 2030 towards net zero before 2050.
