Almost half of UK businesses haven’t set Net Zero targets
A survey by electrotechnical trade news outlet Edie has revealed that up to 45 per cent of businesses in the UK have yet to set net zero targets.
Hosted in association with Inspired Energy, the survey attracted 161 responses from in-house sustainability, energy and carbon professionals at UK organisations of all sizes and sectors.
Thirty-six per cent of respondent organisations are working to a 2030 net-zero deadline. Just over half (55 per cent) of respondents working within organisations with a net-zero target said that target was set for 2030 or sooner. Targets for this decade typically excluded Scope 3 (indirect) emissions while targets for 2040 and 2050 typically included them.
