LATEST MARKET UPDATE: Following a spate of panic-buying yesterday (12th January), gas and power prices have opened down in early trading this morning. Spot prices remain historically high today, but indications are that European traders’ anxieties following a spike in demand in the Asian markets may have been excessive.

We recognise that it will not be easy, however we are excited by the challenge. The Board is passionate about leading by example and proving that a move to net zero not only makes environmental sense but also delivers commercial benefits.”

What is Net Zero and how do you achieve it?

 

In June 2019, the UK parliament passed legislation requiring the government to reduce the UK’s net emissions of greenhouse gases to Net Zero by 2050. Achieving Net Zero is done by creating an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions taken out of the atmosphere.

Like a bath with the taps on, balance can be achieved by turning down the taps (reducing emissions) or taking the plug out to release some water (removal of emissions from the atmosphere). The key to achieving Net Zero for your business is understanding where you can turn the taps down and where you need to release some water.
