Net Positive


Businesses that aim to be Net Positive go beyond minimizing harm, to actively creating good. Being Net Positive means creating impact beyond traditional business boundaries, across the whole value chain. It enhances natural and social capital, creates long-term business resilience, and delivers bottom-line benefits in the short term.

The Climate Group and the Carbon Trust joined BT in London in 2014 for the launch of BT’s Net Good methodology, vision and goal: to help customers reduce their carbon emissions by at least three times the end-to-end carbon impact of BT’s business by 2020.

How much net good can your business generate? The Net Good methodology is open source. It was created so that it could be applied to other businesses. We want to know what you think of it. How can this be improved? Is there anything that is missing? Please let us know by going to or discussing it on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Explore our infographic below to see how your business can move from doing less 'bad' to doing more 'good'.
