Transitioning to a zero carbon, climate resilient economy is a long-term aspiration, but we need to act with urgency and prioritise delivery now.
We are in a climate emergency, a global energy cost crisis, and facing economic uncertainty. The need to act becomes more pressing with each day that passes.
Net Zero 2040
We have challenged ourselves to go further and faster than the net zero 2050 targets set in law. NI Water is committing to achieve net zero for the energy we use by 2030 and net zero for all our emissions by 2040, as measured against our 2020/21 adjusted baseline.
