Creating meaningful change
At the core of Conrad Energy is a desire to improve the world we live in for future generations. As a responsible developer, owner and operator, we are passionate about sustainability and creating a cleaner future for the UK and understand the challenges faced to do so.
We recently finalised our Sustainability Roadmap to 2030, an Environmental Social Governance strategy which sets out our ESG goals as we support the UK in the transition to net zero. Anchored by a development strategy to diversify into solar and storage and reduce emissions across our activities, we are already well on the way with 250MW of solar in development, a 40MW battery now operational and over 200MWh of storage projects in construction.
We are acutely aware of the urgency and importance of taking action to address the aggressive global and local sustainability targets. In a changing world, Conrad Energy’s direction is central to facilitating a cleaner and sustainable future in the UK.
Our ESG strategy is guided by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) sustainability reporting standards and the SBTi (Science-Based Targets Initiative) framework. Our ESG target areas are aligned with the core Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as prioritised by ISQ Capital, our parent group.
As a forward thinking and responsible energy company we recognise there is much work to do and we are motivated and determined to deliver results.
People and communities
Our Conrad Energy Community Fund supports communities close to our projects and offices. Founded in 2021, the Conrad Energy Community Fund has contributed to 13 charities in 10 counties across the UK. We’ve supplied football shirts and sports coaching, supported woodland planting and a sensory garden, helped to refurbish a dance studio and sponsored a theatre scholarship. From Barnsley to Basingstoke, Blackpool to Bristol, we look forward to working with many more community groups in 2022 and beyond as we support the transition to net zero.
