Net zero by 2050

Each and every one of us has a part to play in fighting climate change, so I am delighted to hear that one of the UK’s major energy suppliers, E.ON, is now providing its customers across Britain with a 100% renewable electricity supply at no extra cost.  

Last month the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050. The target will require the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, compared with the previous target of at least 80% reduction from 1990 levels. We have already reduced emissions by 42% but there is still work to be done, and it is great to see major energy suppliers like E.ON leading the way in achieving net zero emissions.
