Our CEO Nigel Pocklington takes a look at this greenwashing culprit.

🐬 It's #WorldOceanDay 🐠

Our oceans store huge amounts of carbon, but global heating and pollution is limiting this.

It’s #WorldEnvironmentDay, and we’re imagining what our homes and cities could look like here in the UK if we’re to put a stop to global heating.

🌳 More trees
🌿 Green spaces
🚲 Streets safe for cycling
🔋 Electrified transport
🏡 Solar on every roof possible

Let’s reimagine…

#Newcar registration figures for May are out today from the @SMMT.

⚡️It's a great result for pure #ElectricCars, with #BEVs taking 8.4% of market share. That means there are officially more than 250,000 battery-electric cars on UK roads. More stats and analysis to follow. ⚡️

Join us on 22nd June for the launch of our new Renewable Nation report. It's a bold vision for a zero carbon Britain.

We will discuss the findings with some of the UK's leading figures in energy and sustainability, including The Rt. Hon @annietrev.

We've teamed up with Good Energy. They will be using Vattenfall's Energy Trader platform to help balance their renewables portfolio, as they often have excess wind and solar power to sell back to the grid.

Today is the UK's #EarthOvershoot day, meaning if everyone consumed as much as we do here, we'd have used a year's worth of planetary resources already 🤔

Here's a throwback to our project last year with @GoodEnergy. Let's #movethedate! 🌍

🇬🇧Today is UK Earth Overshoot Day.🌍

If everyone in the world used resources at the rate that we do in the UK, today is the day humanity would use up its yearly ecological budget.

Lovely to see advice from @Carolinehickma featured in the latest blog by @GoodEnergy.

"...eco-anxiety is a mentally healthy response... We should be feeling anxious, sad, scared, guilty, grief, anger & frustration. These are ...a sign that we care…"

The @IEA has published its global 2050 #netzero analysis. Key points:

🛢 No new oil or natural gas fields or coal mines
⚡️ Renewables form 29% of power to nearly 90%
🔋 EV charge points from 1m to 40m by 2030
🚙 By 2035 nearly all cars sold are electric

Is there a new, low carbon form of holiday which can replace our addiction to air travel?

@frucool literally wrote the book on slow travel & @sachadench is reimagining it altogether.
