What's the Net Zero Strategy and what are we doing to work towards it?

The Net Zero Strategy is the UK government’s policy to decarbonise all sectors of the UK economy to achieve net zero by 2050. 

Net zero means cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible - an essential goal to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and preserve the planet to a liveable state. Global temperatures need to be limited to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, and to achieve this, emissions need to be reduced by 45% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050 (United Nations), as established in the Paris Agreement in 2015. 

The UK’s net zero target was made legally binding in the Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 (UK Parliament) and requires undertaking extensive system transformation. 

How can we achieve Net Zero? 

 Onunda's technology supports the UK's Net Zero goal by not burning any new fossil fuels. Instead, our innovative technology recovers and uses the energy contained in sewage to power the plant. In doing so, Onunda provides a next generation wastewater treatment solution without adding to the anthropogenic carbon footprint.
