The situation in Ukraine is increasingly worrying and I want to share my view of what we are doing as a company.
I absolutely condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. I am heartened by the resolute stance of NATO, the EU and many companies and stand behind and recognise the bravery of the Ukrainian people.
Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people and our first concern is for their safety.
In regards to our biomass, we source the vast amount from North America. We have ceased the supply of the small percentage – less than 1% – of Russian biomass we use and are working with our suppliers and customers, to identify any further links to Russia.
We have systems in place and are working closely with the UK Government and other critical national infrastructure organisations to manage security threats arising from this conflict and to maintain our security of supply to all our customers.
