Road to net zero

Net zero ambitions for UK businesses are accelerating.

Are the plans already in place though that will get us to the sustainable future we want as quickly as we need?

A more sustainable future is becoming a much clearer reality. Renewable energy is set to overtake fossil fuels as the largest source of electricity within the next five years. And investors are pumping more money into sustainability than ever before.

Many businesses have already made net zero pledges. For instance, UK supermarket chain, Morrisons, this month pledged to be supplied by net zero carbon British farms by 2030. Also, by 2030, IKEA hope to become ‘climate-positive’. O2, Mitie, CMS and WHSmith will all hope to achieve net zero by 2025. The Canary Wharf Group, Apple, the BBC, Sky and Google all hope to achieve net zero by 2030. The list goes on and on.

Looking for sustainability solutions is vital for businesses ahead of a net zero UK business landscape. Most businesses are yet to work out their route to net zero. It’s vital for these companies to explore their options to find the best solution for their business.

Sustainability with profit for your business

We all know how and why it’s important to preserve our planet. It’s what commits us to sustainability.

Sustainability can be a profitable enterprise for businesses to explore. For example, sustainability leads to increased energy and cost savings and additional value of up to 70% of EBITDA according to McKinsey.

Considering energy management solutions to make savings on energy consumption and cost leads to greater control of finances. Energy management systems can target wasted energy consumption, allowing you to optimise your energy practices.

With energy management hardware, you can monitor individual meters and spot anomalous patterns and behaviour ahead of time. This allows you to act early, preventing costly repairs later down the line.

Technology will transform how we interact with energy. It gives businesses a very powerful ability to direct how they procure and plan the use of energy. How they budget it. And forecast it. It gives them back control.
