The UK was the first developed nation to sign into law the target to be carbon neutral by 2050.
In doing so, the Government made the strongest commitment possible to ensure that the UK does all it needs to achieve this target. Since making the announcement, the UK has been a world leader in reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, increasing renewable energy sources, creating the future plans for new, green infrastructure and supporting all industrial sectors to access the funding and investment needed to begin to move the economy, and wider society to a net-zero future.
In a world of reduced resources, our food manufacturers and those responsible for the management of our land stock are under increasing pressure to maximise their processes to extract the most value from their work whilst minimising their impact on the environment.
To achieve emission targets, the UK will need to significantly reduce its reliance on fossil fuels from oil, coal and gas and work towards a future where clean electricity is able to meet the demands of an ever growing population.
