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.
In his latest video diary MD Chris Rea reports on progress on the 29by29 pledge, including the more than £7 million of purchase orders made by mid-January.

The AES Engineering Ltd. Group has committed to invest £29 million on environmental projects between January 1, 2021 and April 1, 2029. Part of the commitment was an undertaking to report on progress, so we are doing what we said we would.
