Drax sets world-first ambition to become carbon negative by 2030
10 December 2019
Drax will be the first company in the world to announce an ambition to become carbon negative by 2030 following CEO Will Gardiner's speech at COP 25 in Madrid on Tuesday December 10, 2019.
Using bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) Drax will remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it produces, creating a negative carbon footprint for the company.
Drax’s ambition is only achievable with an effective negative emissions policy and investment framework. The UK Government is developing those as part of its global leadership in addressing the climate crisis.
