Typical industries implementing carbon management

Drivers for Carbon Management and Net Zero

The business world is changing and moving towards a low carbon and, ultimately, net-zero economy. This brings opportunity for those companies able to adapt. For those who don’t the future is less certain. As Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney, said: “If some companies fail to adjust to this new world, they will fail to exist.”

The commercial imperative for companies to transition towards net-zero carbon is indeed increasing. Tighter legislation, pressure applied from consumers, shareholders, investors and supply chain partners, coupled with the need to remain competitive, are just some of the factors driving this change.

The need to act is clear but, for some companies, the barriers to action are real and considerable. Locogen works closely with clients to ensure that their businesses prosper from this new reality, while removing barriers to entry such as:


Should you invest in renewables on-site? Which will deliver the best returns? What about shifting demand with energy storage or deploying low carbon heating? Would a corporate PPA work better?


We are in tough times. How much is all of this going to cost? Can you access funding? How do you present the business case to your board?


Do you have the time to do this? Do you have the staff?


How can you evaluate these technologies? Which suppliers can you trust? Are the returns achievable?
