The Road to Net-Zero: Business energy on the path to sustainability

Businesses have had it tough over the last decade. After recession, Brexit and the financial strain of lockdown, the pressure is on for organisations to play their part in helping to reduce the impact of climate change.

In this report we reveal the findings of our latest research on the topic of sustainability, tracking the green journeys of some of the highest energy consuming businesses in Britain.

In ‘The Road to Net-zero’ report, we aim to help organisations benchmark their current green evolution against the UK average and explore the drivers of, and barriers to, change – with the ultimate goal of helping business leaders understand how to take the next steps and safeguard a sustainable and financially secure future for both their organisations and the planet.
