Emma Hird and Claire Markham, Client Optimisation Managers, Inspired Energy

With introduction of net zero targets by the Government, UK businesses must significantly reduce the environmental impact of their activities if we’re going to come anywhere close to reaching our carbon targets by 2050. Over the last decade, the energy industry has encountered a number of compliance schemes, many of which have been complex, and costly to maintain. Emma and Claire discussed how recent schemes can provide a clear pathway for businesses who are ready to plan their own journey towards net zero, including opportunities to benefit from Corporate Power Purchase Agreements, and some of the ways this can deliver real value to the end user.
