His Majesty King Charles III

Today, Charles has been formally proclaimed King at a historic Accession Council in a ceremony at St James’s Palace in London’s City of Westminster.

Will Gardiner, Drax Group CEO said:

“On behalf of Drax Group, I welcome the announcement of His Majesty King Charles III as Head of State. The King has done an exemplary job as Prince of Wales, forging relationships across nations and showing great commitment to environmental and climate causes.

“His Majesty launched the Sustainable Markets Initiative (SMI) in 2020 and invited me to join the Carbon Capture, Use and Storage taskforce, enabling industry executives to work on meaningful and actionable plans to help accelerate the world’s transition to a sustainable future. This is a critical cause that will continue to affect us all.

“His longstanding service to the British public, and across the Commonwealth, follows his mother’s outstanding example.

“My condolences remain with the Royal Family as they, and we too, mourn the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”
