Operating on Carbon-free energy 24/7

We’re proud that we were the first training company to reach carbon neutrality in 2021. We’ve matched our global electricity consumption with 100% renewable energy.

But we know we must push further to confront the magnitude of today’s climate challenge. Now, we aim to be the first training company to achieve 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030.

To get there, we’re pursuing new carbon-free energy transportation and storage technologies.

In 2020 working at height invested in its 1st carbon free electric car a Nissan leaf. We understand further investment is needed in the area of transport. We’ll continue our work with local governments, utilities, clients and all relevant authorities across Europe and globally to deploy those technologies and drive system-level change. We will also support public policies that advance robust global climate action, create pathways to a carbon-free economy, and realise the vision of the European Green Deal.

As we learn more about the best ways to move towards our goal, we hope to demonstrate that a fully decarbonised future is achievable for everyone.

Eliminate all our legacy carbon emissions since 2021

In 2021, we were the first training company to reach carbon neutrality, and since we’ve matched 100% of our electricity consumption with renewable energy purchases. Today, we’ve procured enough high-quality carbon offsets to neutralise all of our emissions since our founding.

Supporting our Partners & Clients

Deleting emissions from our own operations is vital, but our impact is far greater when we work with others to do the same. We’re committed to sharing technology & methods to help organisations everywhere transition to resilient, carbon-free systems.
