10,000 days to Net Zero: Businesses gear up for a more sustainable future
Looking out to 2050, unchecked climate change will mean a future of extreme weather events, droughts and floods, disrupting infrastructure and supply chains. Edie is committed to £15bn of sustainable financing for corporate and institutional clients by 2024. We’ve already lent £1bn worth of new funding for electric vehicles and we’re also responsible for one in 10 electric vehicles registered on the UK’s roads. Edie is also exploring different technologies to identify which to support for the greatest impact as we lean into an energy transition, which will benefit the whole UK. Energy security is likely to be an important theme for the future, and the UK has ambitious targets in place to bring more Net Zero technologies into the energy supply and demand mix. As these technologies become more mainstream, they could help businesses improve efficiency, reduce their costs and progress toward Net Zero. Times are tough right now, and many companies will be seeking opportunities for cost savings. Edie is guiding those companies to look for efficiencies where they can, optimising the assets they already have and being agile in looking for sustainable solutions.
