Live National Grid Generation Data:
In 2019, the UK government committed to achieving ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The UK became the first country in the world to sign this ambitious target into law following the signing of the historic Paris Agreement in 2016. In 2021, the UK further committed to achieving a 78% reduction in emissions by 2035 as part of their pathway to net zero. The reduction target is based on 1990s levels and crucially, also includes the UK’s share of international shipping and aviation emissions for the very first time.
There is a long road ahead to achieve these targets and the government needs to engage actively and constructively with all those who will need to play a part – across the public sector, with industry and with citizens – to inject the necessary momentum. Regulatory changes are anticipated and businesses need to act fast if they want to stay ahead of the curve – but that’s not the only reason to act. Other reasons to proactively reduce carbon include:
- Avoid / Reduce costs
- Staff engagement
- Satisfy supply chain demand
- Protect the environment
- Meet corporate responsibility guidelines
