ScottishPower has come top of a report charting exactly which of the UK’s power companies are doing the most to respond to climate change.
The ‘Generating Climate Change’ report, which was carried out by environmental pressure group, WWF, ranked the UK’s six largest power companies according to their performance on greenhouse gas emissions, energy efficiency and renewable energy. ScottishPower and Centrica were identified as leaders on renewable energy investments, while EDF Energy topped the energy efficiency category.
ScottishPower also showed the best reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, making them top overall. EDF Energy ranked bottom of the survey.
“ScottishPower deserves praise for doing the most to adapt their business to challenge the climate change. However, the report shows that overall the power sector is doing little beyond trying to meet government targets,” explained Matthew Davis, climate change campaign director at WWF in the UK.
