Centrica cuts internal carbon footprint by 11% in 2017

We are pleased to announce that in 2017, we have been able to cut emissions across our property, fleet and travel by 11%. This number brings our total reduction to 18%. Our target is to reduce our footprint by 20% by 2025. Between 2007-15, we were able to cut emissions by 27%.

It’s clear that climate change is one of the greatest global challenges facing society. That motivates me as Centrica’s Head of Environment and many of my colleagues, to take meaningful action to reduce energy’s impact.
JIM RUSHEN Centrica, 2018

Using our distributed energy solutions, making changes across our fleet and optimising travel arrangements, have been key channels to making this level of progress.

We’re also helping customers cut their carbon footprint, through the products and services we offer.   Customers are able to take steps to decarbonise their energy system through flexibility to the grid and the energy solutions available from Centrica Business Solutions.
