Hitting ambitious goals and targets can be tough… as the government conceded recently, when it admitted the UK will only cut carbon emissions by 68% by 2030 on its way to reaching net zero by 2050.
Yet that still places huge pressure on all organisations and businesses to play their part – and make decarbonisation central to their strategy and decision making.
The government’s new plan has several elements, including a £20bn proposal to capture and store carbon deep under the North Sea floor. The government hopes this will allow the country to cut emissions while maintaining fossil fuel projects – a strategy derided by many experts and environmental groups. But the Federation of Small Businesses has welcomed grants that will help small firms increase energy efficiency, while the CBI has described the plan as a “gear shift” to boost energy security and re-establish the UK’s credentials as a leader in green technologies.
But big picture aside, there are plenty of actionable, practical steps that organisations can take to meet their own targets in terms of reducing carbon footprint and minimising environmental impact.
