What is net zero and what is the role of offsets in a portfolio net zero strategy?
We sat down with Property Week to discuss what we mean by net zero and how do you encourage companies and businesses to think about creating a credible pathway to get there. Listen to the full podcast here.

The podcast is part of Property Week’s Climate Crisis Challenge, a dedicated online presence to bring sustainability business intelligence, climate leadership and evidence of solutions and actions, which we became partners of earlier this year.
Jamie Oliver, who leads on energy performance and decarbonisation programmes at Carbon Intelligence, urged asset and fund managers to rethink their strategy if it relies heavily on offsets.
“If your strategy hinges on offsetting it means you’re spending that money on offsets when you could be investing in efficiency now to avoid the future costs of electricity, gas and of offsetting in the future” – Jamie Oliver
