LATEST MARKET UPDATE: Gas and Power prices are largely trading at parity with last week’s levels, despite some significant price swings at the front of the pricing curve. The bout of low pressure has seen reduced wind output, increasing demand for gas-fired power generation and stretching a European gas system which is struggling to attract global LNG. Winter prices have also been volatile with concerns over gas storage levels being partially offset by positive supply news surrounding the potential completion of the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline. Prices further out have been softer, as renewed coronavirus fears in the wake of the delta variant have weigh on global oil markets.

What is Net Zero?


In June 2019, the UK parliament passed legislation requiring the government to reduce the UK’s net emissions of greenhouse gases to Net Zero by 2050. Achieving Net Zero is done by creating an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions taken out of the atmosphere.

Like a bath with the taps on, balance between emissions can be achieved by turning down the taps (reducing emissions) or taking the plug out to release some water (removal of emissions from the atmosphere). The key to achieving Net Zero for your business is understanding where you can turn the taps down and where you need to release some water.



How do you achieve Net Zero?


Although Net Zero may seem a like a distant goal for many, it is fully achievable with the right strategy in place. The first step in developing a Net Zero strategy is understanding your current position and what your current energy usage or expenditure is. This is where the Future Net Zero Solution Standard can help, designed as a tool to aid with the monitoring and measuring of your Carbon Footprint.
