Definition

This metric tracks whether the company has set a date by which it plans to reach net-zero GHG emissions.

Expanded Definition

Net-zero is defined as “the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere.” This metric presupposes that the company has set net-zero targets and attached a date to that goal.
