Government to bring forward climate target by 15 years

20 April 2021

Boris Johnson is set to announce radical new climate change targets this week, which will set the UK on course to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035.

What are GHG Emissions?

23 March 2021

Greenhouse gas emissions caused by the burning of fossil fuels create a thermal barrier in the earth’s atmosphere - preventing the sun’s rays from escaping. As a result, our planet’s climate becomes hotter, leading to environmental issues, such as forest fires, melting polar ice caps, and droughts. But what are GHG emissions in relation to the energy sector - and what can enterprises working within the industry do to help reduce the damage wreaked upon
