Harnessing the business benefits of net zero



Net Zero

Most people would choose the incentive of carrot rather than the avoidance of stick when being asked to change their behaviour.

Yet, in the area of government directives, sticks are often the ‘motivators’ to get businesses to comply.

When it comes to meeting the government’s 2050 net zero emissions target, we’re still not clear on how the carrots will stack up against the sticks. Hopefully the long-anticipated Net Zero Review and Energy Whitepaper will provide some answers.

Why expert insight is more important than ever this winter

We are less than two weeks away from the start of the 2020/21 Triad season, and customers are already asking us what to expect.

Sadly, we don’t have a crystal ball to predict when the three half hours of peak demand will fall over the coming winter season.*

But we do have an expert team of Triad-forecasting specialists who scrutinise all of the key energy data, weather conditions, national demand trends and a whole range of other factors to call out likely Triad periods.

Net zero: what do businesses really think?

Net Zero

For a term that’s a relative newcomer to our everyday business language, net zero has gained a lot of traction in a short time.

A Google search, for example, brings up 1.47 billion results. And businesses of all sizes are feeling under pressure to have an official stance regarding their commitment to net zero.

Certainly, we hear from customers everyday asking for help with defining or delivering a net zero strategy. But what do businesses really think?

The road to net zero: three views UK businesses share



Net Zero

If one positive can be taken from the events of 2020 so far, it’s the glimpse lockdown gave us all of a low-carbon future; with emissions down, cleaner air, and renewables successfully powering our homes and businesses.

Little wonder then, that while actively pursuing decarbonisation stalled during the Covid-19 crisis, the reopening of our economy has brought with it a renewed focus on net zero goals.

But while businesses, industry bodies and action groups are increasingly calling for sustainability to be placed at the heart of a ‘green recovery’, clear guidance and meaningful support for organisations who want to take their own strides towards net zero is yet to be provided by UK policymakers.

In November 2019, the UK Treasury announced it would conduct a Net Zero Review to assess how the UK could make the most of the economic opportunities the green transition presents. Published following the UK legislating to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, this Review, alongside the much-anticipated Energy White Paper, is designed to provide a clear roadmap on how the UK would achieve and fund its ambitious low-carbon transition.
