Clean Air quality is the largest environmental risk to public health in the UK and investing in cleaner air and doing even more to tackle air pollution are priorities for the UK Government. That is why the UK has adopted tougher, legally binding ceilings for emissions of Air pollutants for 2020 and 2030. The Scottish Highlands enjoys the UK’s cleanest air and north of England and Cornwall have the lowest levels of pollution.
Clean Energy refers to any source of power that does not pollute or harm the environment. Clean energy can be distinguished from renewable power in that clean power is focused on carbon emission reduction as a method of counteracting “dirty” energy as a primary goal whereas renewables would be, by definition, focused on the ability to reuse a resource as an ultimate goal. We work with Britain’s leading Clean Electricity & Clean Gas Suppliers.
Clean Technology (Cleantech) is a general term used to describe products, processes or services that reduce waste and require as few non-renewable resources as possible. Cleantech, has emerged as an umbrella term encompassing the investment asset class, technology, and business sectors which include clean energy, environmental, and sustainable or green, products and services.
Clean Emissions is phasing out polluting vehicles and phasing in non-zero-emitting vehicles as soon as possible. Major UK Cities have already started targeting polluting vehicles such as HGV, Commercial, Taxis, Buses and Diesel Cars and developing Zero Emissions zones. We focus on keeping exhaust systems clean, advances in Battery technology for Electric Vehicles & Storage.
A Cleaner, Greener Britain
Defending the most precious thing we have !
The facts are the climate of our planet is changing at a pace unlike anything seen in the natural fluctuations traced across geological records, and scientists have overwhelmingly traced this global warming trend to human activity. Clean Climate Britain works to reduce the amount of Carbon Emissions produced in Britain.
Climate Change “Its in our own hands”
Climate change is often treated as a political issue, but it shouldn’t be.
- Global temperature rise
- Warming oceans
- Shrinking ice sheets
- Glacial retreat
- Decreased snow cover
- Sea level rise
- Declining Arctic sea ice
- Extreme events
- Ocean acidification

Doing our bit in Britain
We hope our initiative for a Clean Climate Britain will encourage others to do their bit for Future Generations around the World.
Energy Efficient Britain
Efficient energy use, sometimes simply called energy efficiency, is the goal to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services.
Energy Efficiency Training
Interactive, eLearning programmes that will help your employees to understand what energy is, how the use of energy impacts on our environment and how they can use less energy at home and at work to save costs and to create healthier businesses and a healthier planet.
Energy Assurance & Certification
ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification – Adoption of the ISO 50001 standard helps Organisations to enhance their energy performance via the implementation of an Energy Management System based on a model of continual improvement.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management – is an International standard that specifies requirements for an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). It provides the framework that an Organisation can follow rather than establishing Environmental performance requirements.
Low Carbon Britain
Clean Climate Britain helps organisations and companies reduce their carbon emissions and become more resource efficient. We want to accelerate Britain’s move to a more sustainable, low carbon economy.
Energy Audits & Assessment
An Energy Audit or Energy Assessment is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows, for energy conservation in a building to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output. The first step is to assess how much energy your building consumes and to evaluate what measures you can take to make it more energy efficient. An assessment will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time.
Energy Efficiency Funding
Increasing energy efficiency often costs money up-front but in many cases this capital outlay will be paid back in the form of reduced energy costs within a short time period. This makes efficiency improvements an attractive starting point for reducing carbon emissions.
Britain’s Smart Energy
Energy supplies are changing and it will down to mix of Customer and Suppliers to Manage and Control Energy efficiency through Smart Technologies in the home and Customer Relationship Management systems in Business. Energy Suppliers will be able to switch on / off remotely to save Energy and control costs.
Clean technology refers to any process, product, or service that reduces negative environmental impacts through significant energy efficiency improvements, the sustainable use of resources, or environmental protection activities.
Clean Emissions Britain

Clean Emissions or Zero Emission refers to an engine, motor, process, or other energy source, that emits no waste products that pollutes the environment or disrupts the climate.
Renewable Energy from a source that is not depleted when used, such as solar, wind & water power which deliver environmental benefits.
Technology has found a way of harnessing the sun’s energy via solar panels which are used either to generate electricity or to produce heat to warm water (solar thermal). Solar Energy Technologies include: Photovoltaic Systems – Producing electricity directly from sunlight, Solar Hot Water – Heating water with solar energy, Solar Electricity – Using the sun’s heat to produce electricity, Passive Solar Heating, Solar Process Space Heating and Cooling.
Supporting the Woodland Trust & Tree Charter
During 2017 the Woodland Trust reached out to all sections of UK society to define this new charter, and to build a people-powered movement for trees. More than 70 organisations and 300 local community groups answered the call and helped to collect over 60,000 tree stories from people across the UK, demonstrating the important role that trees play in their lives.
These stories were read and shared, and helped to define the 10 Principles of the Tree Charter, ensuring that it stands for every tree and every person in the UK.
Climate Change in Britain
Climate change has serious and long-lasting implications for us all. Clean Climate Britain is taking action to reduce the impacts of climate change that are affecting Britain right now so our future generations can have the benefit of our actions.
GLA – Greater London Authority
Around half of London’s air pollution is caused by road transport. Poisonous gases and particles lead to thousands of premature deaths each year they raise the risk of asthma, dementia and strokes. London’s toxic air has a severe impact on children a child born in London in 2010 will lose two years of life expectancy because of air pollution* *estimated if exposed to same level of pollution over their lifetime. 1 in 10 Londoners under the age of 18 has asthma.
Affects on Social & Environmental Health
Climate change affects the social and environmental determinants of health – clean air, safe drinking water, sufficient food and secure shelter.Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250 000 additional deaths per year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress.
Outdoor air pollution is contributing to about 40,000 early deaths a year in the UK. Royal Colleges of Physicians and of Paediatrics and Child Health.
The No.1 Global Challenge
The Earth’s average land temperature has warmed nearly 1°C in the past 50 years as a result of human activity and atmospheric concentrations of the major greenhouse gases are at their highest level in 800,000 years.

“Paris is just the starting gun for the race towards a low-carbon future,” says WWF-UK Chief Executive David Nussbaum.
Our Ocean conference Malta Oct 2017
Nearly half of the World’s population depends directly on the sea for their livelihoods. We all rely on the oceans in some way: for our water, our food, our climate and our air. But human activity has left the oceans suffering from pollution, over exploitation, coastal degradation and global warming.
We need to reduce the amount of Plastic we produce globally Quickly and Together. We produce so much plastic which inevitably ends up in the wrong place. We need to encourage manufacturers to produce packaging that is environmentally friendly and more practical.
Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants and greenhouse gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface. Normally, this radiation would escape into space—but these pollutants, which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere, trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter. That’s what’s known as the greenhouse effect.
Smarter Power Systems
Major changes to the way electricity is produced, used and stored will result in Smarter Power Systems. Renewable Energy technology today will benefit from advances in Storage of the resources generated. Places such as Warwick University Energy Innovation Centre is a national facility for battery research across the R&D process from materials and electrochemistry through to application integration and recycling / re-use. Their facilities support test, development and scale up of new battery chemistries from concept through to full proven traction batteries, produced in sufficient quantities for detailed industrial evaluation in target applications.
Warwick University Energy Innovation Centre
Smart Technology will increasingly grow, changing our lives and improving our efficiency. Smart tech includes physical and logical applications in all formats that are capable to adapt automatically and modify behaviour to fit the environment. Technologies that allow sensors, databases, and wireless access to collaboratively sense, adapt, and provide for users within their environment.
Storage of electrical energy is generally a complex and expensive challenge. New and improved solutions are required to balance the evolving supply of and demand for energy across applications including automotive, manufacturing and grid. As demands continue to change and grow, suppliers and manufacturers will be expected to manage and improve infrastructure and technology solutions to keep pace.
Swansea University’s SPECIFIC Innovation & Knowledge Centre
Tidal energy is a form of hydro-power that converts the energy of the tides into electricity or other useful forms of power. The tide is created by the gravitational effect of the sun and the moon on the earth causing cyclical movement of the seas.
Green & Sustainable Buildings
Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers to both a structure and the application of processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.
The Future of Rural Energy in Britain
Many homes and businesses in our Rural Communities are off-grid and have little option in choosing high-polluting energy sources, such as coal, heating oil or wood. They have a higher carbon footprint than they need to and often higher, per person, than their urban contemporaries, this is an opportunity for Rural Communities to embrace Renewable Energy.
Britain’s Farming Community
Our Farming Community will play a significant part in Britain’s Energy needs through Solar Farms and Wind turbines hopefully in areas which do not spoil our landscape.
