Climate positive is a state wherein the amount of carbon absorption is more than the amount of carbon emission. This is performed above net-zero carbon by adding to its removal. Climate positive and carbon negative is the same thing.
“The positive net impact of a product, company, municipality or a country on the mitigation of climate change.” To elaborate, climate positivity goes beyond carbon neutrality, i.e. while carbon neutrality concentrates on balancing the number of carbon emissions with the number of carbon offsets and captures. Climate positivity goes further in removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
With drastic changes occurring at a rapid pace, businesses have to adapt to sustain in the long run. Climate positivity helps businesses become smart and efficient towards climate change.
There are essentially only two ways to become climate positive. The first is excessive offsets relative to the number of emissions, and the second is assisting others in reducing their emissions by making sure the entire supply chain does so, monitoring your product until it is disposed of or recycled appropriately, etc.
Carbon neutrality works on balancing the number of carbon emissions with the amount of carbon absorption and climate positive goes a step beyond by absorbing additional carbon from the atmosphere.
Companies like Apple, Walmart, Volkswagen, Accenture, BMW, Saint-Gobain, Unilever, Microsoft, IKEA, etc. are a few to name.
