Climate change poses a risk to all businesses large and small

Act now to protect your business

Whether you believe Trump or Thunberg over climate change it is clear that all businesses are already seeing the impact of climate change. In some parts of the world it is through extreme weather or bush fires as in Australia. The UK government has implemented numerous directives from the EU aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Companies are paying a Climate Change Levy (CCL) and Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) are being imposed on rented properties. In 2019 large companies were required to comply with the Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) and report to the Environment Agency. From April 2019 large companies will be required to comply with the Streamline Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) by including in their Directors' report details of their total energy consumption and GHG emissions. The UK government has set a target to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2050.

All businesses are coming under increasing pressure from

customers, investors and governments to protect the

environment by reducing GHG emissions. The key to

achieving Net Zero Carbon by 2050 will be the

decarbonisation of electricity generation. The UK appears

to be on course to achieve this which will have profound

effect on how businesses use energy. For example the

phasing out of boilers in favour of electric heat pumps

for both heating and cooling. Improved battery technology

is seeing the introduction of electric vehicles for some

applications. In the longer term hydrogen will probably

replace fossil fuels for many applications
