THE BURNING OF FOSSIL FUELS FOR ELECTRICITY GENERATION IS ONE OF THE MAJOR FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO CLIMATE CHANGE. THE PRIVATE SECTOR ACCOUNTS FOR AROUND HALF OF THE WORLD’S ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION.
Switching this demand to renewables will help accelerate the transformation of the global energy market away from fossil fuels. This will aid the transition to a low carbon economy.
Our renewable electricity goals reflect this ambition. In addition to using 100% renewable electricity in our own estate we plan to use our relationships with our franchises and suppliers to increase use of renewables in their businesses. This will maximise our impact and make a positive contribution to SDG 7 – Affordable and clean energy.
