Carbon neutrality does not mean reducing carbon emissions totally, but achieving what are called “net zero carbon emissions” through a complicated balancing act of energy use.
It’s process of offsetting a measured amount of carbon emissions with an equal amount of renewable energy. Think using solar panels or planting more trees to help fight future greenhouse gas emissions.
ASU and Canon have accomplished at least 60 percent of their goal, so far.
“There’s been some growing pains,” said Paul Albano, senior manager of solutions marketing for Canon’s Business Imaging Solutions Group. “But it’s really going now and we’re well on our way to meeting our target.”
