Zero Carbon Communities

In 2019, the UK made a legally binding commitment to a zero-carbon future, legislating a deadline for its contribution to global warming – 2050. In some parts of the country, the net-zero targets are even more ambitious.

Exactly how to achieve these targets, and the roadmap to get there, is not yet clear. As energy devolution becomes more and more common, the risk to communities is they are left behind in transition.At ScottishPower, we are launching our commitment to work with these communities to help identify what steps they need to take, specific to them, to meet the goals.

Zero Carbon Communities is the first initiative of its kind to explore and solve these challenges. ZCC sets out a roadmap in each of the regions that we operate in, helping us to achieve a better future, quicker.
