Here's how businesses can measure and reduce their carbon footprint
Toward the end of 2019, there were about 500 companies targeting net-zero emissions. Since then — as the effects of climate change have become more obvious — that number has ballooned to more than 1,500 and includes commitments from giants such as Apple, BP, Ford, Walmart and FedEx.
This has led to start-ups that promise to help corporations track, reduce and offset their emissions popping up everywhere. Companies like Berlin-based Plan A and Planetly are part of the booming carbon management systems market, which was valued at $10.9 billion in 2020. That market is projected to grow to $19.8 billion by 2026.
Individual action is on the rise too, as apps like Klima — which help individuals offset their own personal emissions — are also seeing rapid growth.
