Drax Group CEO comments on European carbon pricing declaration

Will Gardiner issues comments as Drax Group joins global companies calling for more action to support a strong and predictable carbon price.

“Robust carbon pricing is one of the most effective tools to enabling a zero carbon, lower cost energy future. 

Will Gardiner, CEO, Drax Group

“Since the introduction of the UK’s carbon floor price in 2013, coal use has reduced by almost 75% and renewables capacity has tripled. 

“Going forward, it is vital that Governments across Europe and the EU target a strengthened carbon price in order to meet our Paris Agreement climate change targets.”
