Syntegra commits to 100% renewable energy

Syntegra is leading by example and has signed up to use 100% renewable energy for all its properties from the start of 2019 in line with its global goals mission.

SSE Green is a 100% renewable energy tariff offered by SSE Business Energy which allows organisations to report zero emissions for their purchased electricity.

It is aimed at supporting large industrial and commercial operations in the UK manage their Greenhouse Gas Emissions and the provider will supply renewable energy matched to Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origins (REGOs), certifying that the purchased electricity has been generated exclusively through a portfolio of wind and hydro assets.

The head of Syntegra, Alan King, said: ‘We’re proud to have taken the step to show our commitment to 100% renewable energy sources to power our buildings.

‘It is only right that as sustainability consultants who encourage businesses to be as energy efficient as possible and cut their emissions that we should make this move, a statement of our support for cleaner air and fewer greenhouse gases to protect the planet.

‘We advocate our clients follow suit and make their own positive contribution to tackling climate change and enhance their environmental reputation.’

Syntegra is constantly reviewing its own carbon footprint as it urges other businesses to and will monitor the efficiencies made following its transfer to this tariff so it can share firsthand the benefits of green energy to a company.

* In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. https://www.globalgoals.org/

These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. Syntegra’s work is underpinned by many of the goals.

Renewable energy solutions are becoming cheaper, more reliable and more efficient every day.

Our current reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable and harmful to the planet, which is why we have to change the way we produce and consume energy. Implementing these new energy solutions as fast as possible is essential to counter climate change, one of the biggest threats to our own survival.

By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
