These gases are released through the use of transportation, electricity, industrial and manufacturing processes, commercial and residential buildings, and agricultural activities. The more important question though, is should your business be working towards net-zero goals?
Australia is in the midst of a deforestation and land clearing crisis, and we know that two-thirds of agricultural land is degraded and continuing to deteriorate.
