What is the future Net Zero Standard

The future Net Zero Standard (fNZ Standard) is an independently verified standard.

Using the standard will not only give you clarity on your emissions, when analysed properly it can help you identify opportunities to drive down your emissions. This is an easy to use, online platform that will help members to benchmark carbon emissions and then track them moving forwards. The intuitive design means that it works for SME’s through to £40m+ businesses.


How fNZ Standard Works

The solution includes the ability to upload gas and electricity data but also travel and direct carbon, such as on-site power generation, information to give you a holistic view. Once you have benchmarked your carbon emissions, you simply upload your energy consumption data on a monthly or quarterly basis to track the ongoing performance of your business.

Every 12 months your data will be independently certified, and your business will be given the fNZ Standard accreditation. The accreditation will be one of four levels depending upon the reduction in carbon emissions you achieve.                                              


The levels are:

  • Bronze = 10%
  • Silver = 20%
  • Gold = 30%
  • Platinum = 50%   

Your accreditation includes a logo that can be used across all promotional materials to your stakeholders.
