You and your business

We can all play our part in helping the North West achieve net zero. By making a few simple changes such as fitting insulation, changing to LED lighting, travelling less or installing solar panels to generate your own power, you and your business could save money and help tackle climate change at the same time.

As a network operator we have a dual role to play in the drive to reach net zero. As well as reducing our own carbon footprint, we have a responsibility to lead and support our customers and other stakeholders to do the same. 

Working with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, we have produced information on a number of steps you can take now to reduce your energy bills and explain the benefits for you and your business.

  • Measures to reduce CO2 for your business – sets out the top five measures you can take to reduce your energy bills for your particular business area
  • Sustainability perceptions – examines what impact an organisation’s sustainability credentials has on a customer’s response to your brand and whether customers are willing to pay extra for a product or service from a business that has sustainability measures in place
  • Barriers to adoption of solar PV and EV charging infrastructure – a study into the reasons businesses may be reluctant to adopt solar power and electric vehicles.
