Zest completes first year of Pledge to Net Zero commitments

Zest, the UK’s fastest growing investor-operator of public access EV charging infrastructure, has completed its first year commitments to the Pledge to Net Zero. Pledge to Net Zero was established to commit organisations from the environmental sector to take a leadership role in accelerating the transition to a Net Zero carbon economy.

The pledge requires signatories to commit and report on a science-based target inline with global SBTi standards to tackle greenhouse gas emissions within their organisations. Even fast-growing companies like Zest, designed from the outset as a low carbon operation, can demonstrate significant per capita emissions reductions with the right strategy and focus.

A certified B Corporation, Zest works to rigorous social and environmental standards to publicly demonstrate its commitment to a triple bottom line: people, planet, profit. The company offsets all its carbon emissions through Carbon Neutral Britain and works with the Carbon Literacy Project to help its people to gain the skills they need to reduce their own carbon footprint.

The Pledge To Net Zero initiative is a partner to the UN’s Race to Zero campaign, to which Zest is is also committed. Race to Zero is the world’s largest coalition of non-state actors taking immediate action to halve global emissions by 2030.

Robin Heap, CEO and Founder at Zest, said:
“Our charge points are reducing the UK’s reliance on fossil fuels and helping people make the switch to EV, preventing huge amounts of carbon from being released into the atmosphere.

It’s not enough to be building the change. We have a responsibility to systematically reduce our own emissions, to be transparent about our progress, and to encourage our people and the wider industry to join the mission. Pledge to Net Zero is an important element in our carbon reduction strategy.”
