SSE's Climate Change Impact: F

How can SSE improve on its Climate Change Impact?

SSE currently does not power their corporate building using 100% green renewable energy. This means the electricity used contains a mix of electricity generated by non-renewable means. This may include fossil fuels, such as coal. Today there are many different electricity providers offering green generated renewable electricity.

Becoming carbon-free is one of many ways to become an eco company.

If SSE was to become a carbon-negative company will not only cover its outgoing carbon dioxide production, but remove more than its total output.

It is estimated that globally we are required to invest around USD 60 trillion to decarbonise. If every company, including SSE was able to fund (in part) something towards climate change as we must reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide.
