Good Energy commits to science-based emissions target

Good Energy has committed to a target of halving the carbon emissions of its business by 2030, outlined in its new 2021 Purpose Report.

The renewable energy supplier has signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative, having already achieved significant cuts from a 2018 baseline year, when it produced the equivalent of more than 550 tonnes of CO2.

However, the pandemic distorted the most recent figures, owing to employees working remotely leading to lower energy use and emissions from commuting and in addition, the business now includes home working and supply chain emissions in its reporting which puts new pressure on achieving the target.

The Science Based Targets initiative is led by facilities and sustainability partner Cherish Jackson (pictured) who said: “To reduce our environmental impact as much as possible we volunteered to take part in a scheme which would challenge us to move much further and faster. Switching to a hybrid working model has already decreased commuting emissions by almost half, and green allowances encourage colleagues to walk, cycle or use public transport instead of driving.”
