Your Pledge in Numbers

How this could affect the financial future of your business
Extensive research and conversation with key financial figures suggest that future access to finance may prove to be more difficult for businesses without a net zero focus.
There are no commercial energy price caps and without a sustainable fixed energy solution such as solar panels with a PPA, you can rely on a fixed energy tariff for the next 25 years. This will allow for a fixed term projection for energy expenditure, which will be a key benefit for banks and financial institutions. It will also provide added security for lenders to see that you are future proofing your business with key competitive advantages and a demonstrable pledge for the future of your business.
