How committed is your organisation to saving energy? Please let us know!
“The UK government’s 2008 Climate Change Act established the world’s first legally binding climate change target, aiming to reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% (from the 1990 baseline) by 2050.
Posted on 07 March 2017.
Significant progress has been made with carbon emissions have been cut by an average of 4.5 per cent a year over the past three years to ensure emissions are now 38 per cent below 1990 levels.
However, this has been achieved almost entirely through the power sector, thanks to investment in renewables and a reduction in coal use; progress on other fronts, including low carbon heat, energy efficiency and transport, has been disappointing.
Every UK organisation needs to get on board with saving energy if we are to stand any chance of meeting the UK’s targets and doing our bit to limit global temperature increase to 1.5 °C.
How committed are businesses to saving energy? Is your organisation doing well? Could you be doing more? What are the barriers?
