On June 27th 2019, the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws regarding global warming. The goal has been set to be carbon net zero by 2050.
TUCOE wants to ensure all of our customers and allies are doing their all to make this goal a reality.
Carbon Net Zero refers to balancing the amount of emitted greenhouse gases with the equivalent emissions that are either offset or sequestered.
This should primarily be achieved through a rapid reduction in carbon emissions, but where zero carbon cannot be achieved, offsetting through carbon credits or sequestration through rewilding or carbon capture and storage needs to be utilised.
There are two objectives a building needs to meet. The first is the building needs to receive energy via verified clean renewable energy sources whether on-grid or off-grid.
Feel free to contact us for impartial advice on this.
The second is that the building itself then needs to be as energy efficient as possible. This means identifyng areas that are either inefficient or harmful to this objective. An example is phasing out appliances that use freon.
If these two objectives are met we will be well on our way to hitting that 2050 objective.
