£29 million by 2029 investment pledge


Our ‘£29 million by 2029’ pledge recognises that businesses will have a potentially huge influence on the success of efforts to limit global warming.

By committing to take the global company beyond Net Zero globally (we have already gone beyond Net Zero in the UK business) and explaining how we are going to do it, we believe we will provide a road map for other companies and organisations who share our concern about ethical, balanced and sustainable development.
