Aggreko sets target to be net zero by 2050

Aggreko sets target to be net zero by 2050

Supplier of temporary energy equipment, Aggreko has set the goal to be a net zero business by 2050. These aims are in line with the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°c.

The company has pledged to achieve a 50% reduction in the amount of fossil fuels it uses by 2030, as well as a 50% reduction in its local air quality emissions. It aims to develop new technologies and fuels that are cleaner but just as reliable; becoming a fully net zero business by 2050.

To achieve its aim, Aggreko is partnering with many organisations across different industries. The company will also invest in more sustainable technologies and clean energy alternatives such as e-fuels, hydrogen-ready engines and fuel cells.

Aggreko will increase its use of mobile and modular solar power, as well as battery storage assets, which it hopes will help customers reduce their carbon footprint.

Chris Weston, CEO, explained: “The energy transition is fundamentally changing the way power is generated and delivered. Our customers’ needs are evolving - they require cleaner solutions but without compromising reliability, modularity or cost efficiency.

“Our industry-leading net zero commitments are ambitious but achievable and put us on the path to reduce both our own environmental footprint and that of our customers as we look ahead to a greener future.”
