Helping infrastructure, construction and utility businesses to achieve transformational change, growth & bottom line performance improvements.

In 2019, water companies in England made a pledge to reach carbon net-zero (CN0) from operational emissions by 2030.  A year later, Water UK launched the Net Zero 2030 Routemap (the Routemap) setting out the overall direction, pathways, and interventions to reach CN0.  Several UK water companies (the companies) have also launched their individual Routemaps, leveraging that of Water UK and showcasing their strategies and plans to reach this ambitious target.

Despite the headway made so far, there are uncertainties about the path ahead. This is because current baseline emissions are potentially understated and reducing emissions from certain sources to manageable levels before using nature-based solutions is not feasible. This begs the question whether the UK water industry is on track to achieve this challenging CN0 target by 2030.

In the first of three CN0 water insights, Lanre Akinbolajo who’s just completed his internship with Curzon Consulting as part of his MBA at the Alliance Manchester Business School explores how water companies may be starting further back than they think on the net zero road, and how they may struggle to find a way forward on process emissions in particular.
