We ran this roundtable session to provide an opportunity to discuss what this commitment involves and how companies can get started on their own ‘race to zero’.
Clean energy companies are playing a vital leadership role in the fight against climate change. Our achievements over the past decade in deploying renewable energy, developing storage, and improving energy efficiency are some of the most inspiring and hopeful stories of what we can achieve. Ending emissions in our own operations is an opportunity to continue that leadership role in the run up to the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.
Mark Howard, project manager at Regen, provided an overview of how we have worked to understand Regen’s greenhouse gas emissions and to prioritise our carbon reduction actions.
We were also be joined by Alex Goody, CEO at Gemserv who talked through their motivation to join the SME Climate Hub and provided lessons for those who are embarking on the process.
