Hull Is Becoming A Greener City as CO2 Levels Show Steady Decline

23rd July 2019

Hull CO2
Phil Winter, Hull Live Business Editor, reported yesterday that ‘Hull’s carbon dioxide emissions have dropped in the last year, as the city looks to position itself at the heart of the Humber’s net-zero ambitions.

In a UK Powerhouse report released by Irwin Mitchell on Monday, Hull was found to produce 4.1 kilotons of CO2 per person. This is down four per cent in just 12 months.

The figure meant Hull fared better than places including Leeds (5.1kt), Doncaster (6.7kt) and Newcastle (4.4kt).

Hull also triumphed when it comes to waste recycling, ranking fifth of anywhere in the UK. But Hull performed badly for low emission transport and solar power generation.’

John Hudson, MD of Boston Renewables commented –

“Much to be proud of, but plenty still to do!

It’s great news for Hull to be ahead of other northern cities in the quest for the ‘holy green grail’, but we must all keep the pedal down to stay ahead.

Particular reference is made in the article to Hull’s poor take-up of solar power generation.

This is where Beverley based Boston Renewables can help. Boston offers free site surveys and impartial advice to companies looking to reduce their energy overhead and improve their green credentials.
