Does it have to be planet vs. profit?

Listen to this podcast to hear our CEO Chris O’Shea and Group Head of Environment James Rushen share their experiences of balancing the demands of planet and profit at Centrica.

At Centrica Business Solutions, our strategy and purpose are rooted in providing a one-stop-shop for energy services that’ll help our customers decarbonise, create value, and improve their energy resilience.

Getting to net zero is complex and, like everyone else, we don’t have all the answers yet. However, just as we’ve done for the last 200 years, we’ll continue to evolve and seize the opportunities the energy transition offers to ensure a fair transition for everyone.

In this 30-minute podcast, our CEO Chris O’Shea and Group Head of Environment James Rushen compare their own personal experiences of driving Centrica’s net zero agenda forward. They discuss:

  • Whether net zero is an opportunity or an obstacle for Centrica
  • The obstacles that prevent us from getting to net zero quicker
  • Their advice for other organisations beginning or progressing their net zero journey, and much more.
