Net-Zero, Carbon Neutral, Climate Positive, Carbon Negative, 100% Renewable, 24/7 Hourly Matching, 100% Carbon Free Energy ... what does it all mean? This talk will help you FINALLY understand your organization's climate commitments. Each type of commitment is different, and you can waste a lot of time pushing for a project which doesn't help your company meet its particular kind of commitment. If you want your organization to invest in your green project, your project has to help your organization meet its green target. By the end of this talk, you'll have the ability to decipher corporate climate commitments and understand the types of green software initiatives that will help move the needle for each type of commitment.
