Aligning your sustainability journey with your energy procurement strategy can be difficult, especially in a sector where the power needed to heat a furnace is beyond on-site generation technologies available in the UK (unless you’ve built your own hydroelectric power station).

While trials are planned in the use of hydrogen in furnaces, much of the sector does not have access to sustainable energy in the volumes needed to run their most power-hungry equipment. This can be disheartening for any ESG and sustainability managers when they are looking to make a dent in their scopes 1 & 2 emissions.
