Our road to Net Zero by 2045

At Centrica Business Solutions, we want to shape a lower carbon future by enabling our customers and our business to use energy smarter and more sustainably. Tackling climate change is one of the most important issue facing our society and as a leading provider of energy for homes and organisations, we take our role seriously.

Centrica plc embarked on a journey in 2007 to cut the internal carbon footprint of its property, fleet and travel by 20% by 2015. We exceeded this target, achieving a 27% reduction. In 2015 we committed to further reductions of 20% by 2025 against existing levels - surpassing this target only four years later in 2018 – and leading to the creation of ambitions the following year to reduce our internal carbon footprint and customer emissions in line with Paris goals out to 2030.

As the need to accelerate our journey to net zero grows, Centrica has once again responded by amplifying action as part of its People & Planet Plan – setting targets to help our customers be net zero by 2050 (28% reduction by 2030) while becoming a net zero business ourselves by 2045 (40% reduction by 2034) - five years earlier than its previous goal and the UK deadline.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing society, and we plan to lead by example.

Our strategic transformation

 

Today, Centrica has reduced its total carbon emissions by 18% since 2019.

We've achieved this via property efficiencies, employee behavioural changes, utilising technologies such as LED lighting, on-site solarenergy optimisation and battery storage - alongside a move away from upstream generation and production.

The roll-out of our electric vehicle fleet is significantly reducing our internal carbon footprint; and we're exploring innovative ways to help customers achieve net zero by partnering to build the world’s first net zero industrial cluster in the UK using hydrogen, carbon capture, and storage technology. 

Delivering for colleagues & communities

 

To deliver a more sustainable future, Centrica knows that they need the best team where every colleague can be themselves and better serve customers and communities. By supporting both people and planet, Centrica will help build a more inclusive and sustainable future for communities, our planet and each other.

Which is why we want to build a workforce that reflects the full diversity of its communities, recruit at least 3,500 apprentices and provide career-development opportunities for under-represented groups, as well as inspire colleagues to give 100,000 days to build inclusive communities.
