As a zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity supplier, we have always believed that acting sustainably is quite simply the right thing to do. That’s why we launched our Bryt by Nature programme in 2020, practicing what we preach by fully documenting our journey to becoming a truly sustainable business.
Our Bryt by Nature programme consists of four key areas aligned with the values our business holds of being Sustainable, Passionate, Trusted and Pioneering by nature. These values shape all of our company objectives – from how we construct our products to how we influence our wider communities – and help us to deliver our purpose.
With the release of our 2023 Bryt by Nature report, take a look below at the progress we’ve made on our sustainability journey over the past year.
Our key achievements
This year, we’re proud to announce that, after a robust validation process, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) approved our near-term science-based emissions reduction targets. We’ve joined over 4,000 companies that have set targets with clearly defined pathways to reduce emissions in line with the latest climate science.
We’ve also continued to invest in our sustainable growth and are thrilled to celebrate a milestone of hiring our 100th employee. In 2023, we became the 10th largest British I&C (industrial and commercial) electricity supplier*, and through our collaboration with key technology partners, helped our customers to support the net zero energy transition by providing 10.6MW** of flexibility to the grid. To this aim, we’re also proud to have doubled our target for smart meter installations set for us by Ofgem.
What we’ve learnt this year
This year, our journey has continued to teach us that embedding our sustainability values, policies, and initiatives across our team is essential to achieving our goals. We’ve focused on employee engagement, empowering our colleagues to take action through sustainability-related employee benefits, and by celebrating different observance days to highlight the benefits of individual and business efforts to tackle sustainability challenges.
Another key learning this year has been the importance of collaboration. More than ever, we’ve understood that working in isolation is no longer a viable option in the face of intricate supply chains, and will be working to develop a more holistic plan to reduce our carbon footprint. We’ve also understood that if the UK is to achieve net zero, organisations will also need to increase collaboration efforts with each other; innovating and evolving our product offerings will be crucial in navigating the complexities of a changing energy landscape, and collectively moving forwards to a net zero, sustainable energy future.
We know we have a long way to go on our sustainability journey, but by sharing best practice and working collaboratively we feel we can create real change, faster. We will continue to be transparent and share our own learnings in the hope that by doing so we can help others to have a smoother path.
