"At Drax, we’re proud of the role we play in supporting the UK government’s aim to tackle climate change and achieve a net zero economy by 2050. Last year, we announced our ambition to be the world’s first carbon negative company by 2030.
“To achieve that bold ambition, we need people from diverse backgrounds working in a supportive and inclusive environment. As an industry, and as a Company, we have a long way to go towards greater diversity.
“Due to the predominance, historically, of males working for our Drax Power Limited business, our progress is slow and mixed. However, I’m heartened that colleagues from across Drax are recognising the steps we’re taking as ‘heading in the right direction’.”
– Will Gardiner, Chief Executive, Drax Group plc
