Net zero corporates and ESG

The UK government is about to transform the country by setting out its plans to deliver a net zero emissions economy by 2050. Energy will be at the forefront of this transition as we build on renewables rollout. Many businesses have bigger ambitions to go further and faster. Manufacturing and refineries alone represent approximately 16% of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions, so industrial heat decarbonisation is a key net zero priority. Significant public and private investment will need to be available for the decarbonisation of industrial clusters.

But how will business start or continue their journey, where will investment come from, and how will the new policy framework drive the decisions they face? Our range of products for net zero corporates covering Environmental Social Governance (ESG) can help larger businesses address these critical questions.

Our publications and forums provide insight and analysis for business and public sector organisations looking to decarbonise their power, heat and transport needs. These services keep our clients up to date with the latest policy and regulatory changes, outlining the implications for their roles and organisations, including coverage of technological developments and their anticipated impact as well as changing policies as they evolve both in the UK and worldwide.

What is more, our products provide insight into recent and relevant developments in the energy sector. They assess how these will impact your business, helping to understand how regulatory and policy changes will affect your organisation’s energy bill and enable learning about new energy decarbonisation areas. Our services can also help you understand your roles and responsibilities in energy and carbon reporting and disclosure.
