What does the climate terminology really mean?

To help keep the world within 1.5°C of warming to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we need to work together, all of us, to make drastic reductions in carbon emissions. The goals set out in the Paris Agreement in short mean halving our CO2 emissions this decade and achieving net zero emissions by 2050 - at the latest. This will require an enormous global effort to achieve and unfortunately, the world is not yet on track to do that.
Therefore, those of us who can move faster need to do so. Haglöfs have committed to an ambitious climate strategy to reduce our emissions by 50% over the next 10 years and reach net zero already by 2030 – and in the meantime we are taking full responsibility for the remaining emissions by being climate neutral through offsetting.

While all of this sounds good, the climate terminology, however, can sometimes be confusing or even hard to understand. What does it all really mean? So let’s explain a little bit more!
