    SOCOTEC UK Achieves 100% Renewable Electricity

    Wed 17/05/2023 - 02:30

    We are pleased to announce we have been successful in committing to purchasing renewable electricity through to the end of March 2025.

    To guarantee the authenticity of the renewable energy, SOCOTEC has obtained a Renewable Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificate to certify this. This ensures that the renewable electricity supplied to Total Energies, as well as SOCOTEC's subsequent energy purchases, is supported by Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGOs) certificates from solar, wind, tidal, hydroelectric, and biomass sources. This accomplishment is expected to result in an annual reduction of 313 tonnes of carbon emissions across SOCOTEC's property portfolio.

    This significant milestone reflects SOCOTEC's ongoing commitment to enhance its environmental performance. One of our primary objectives is to achieve carbon neutrality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As Oliver Lockwood, Head of Environment at SOCOTEC UK, stated, "By procuring renewable electricity through a REGO certified tariff, SOCOTEC has substantially reduced the greenhouse gas emissions associated with our electricity consumption across a significant portion of our UK operations. This contributes to our carbon reduction targets and aligns with our commitment to achieving Net Zero status by 2050."
