As a business, we are on a mission to reduce the carbon impact of the heating, lighting and electrical systems of our customers in the North West and UK wide.

Working together, we will deliver Net Zero.

What is Decarbonisation

When we burn fossil fuels to heat and power our homes and businesses, Carbon dioxide is released. Carbon dioxide (CO2), is a greenhouse gas, and when it is released, it accumulates in the atmosphere and contributes to the greenhouse effect, trapping heat and leading to global warming and climate change.

In simple terms, decarbonisation is the process of reducing or removing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions to help mitigate climate change.

The goal of decarbonisation is to decrease and begin to reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere, to reduce the primary drivers of global warming and climate change. The ultimate aim is Net Zero and beyond. 


Why Net Zero matters

Net Zero will be achieved when we reach a balance between the amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted into the atmosphere and the amount removed from it.

But so what?

It’s often said that “The Earth will be fine, even with catastrophic climate change, it’s humans that are at risk”

If we don’t achieve net zero and beyond we will make the earth harder and harder to inhabit, as we move towards potentially catastrophic climate change which would make the level of population we have reached unsustainable.

There are so many critical benefits to reaching Net Zero, but here are just a few:

  • Mitigating and reversing Climate Change
  • Improved air quality and environmental health
  • Long term cost stability
  • Improved biodiversity
  • Improved energy security
  • Reduced geopolitical tensions
  • Economic benefits of job creation in the sector


Creating the Sustainable Building Environments of Tomorrow

Whilst our competitors are busy re-training gas engineers to install heat pumps, Kimpton have been installing heat pumps since the 1970’s when we played a key part in helping Walkers Crisps and Golden Wonder develop the UK crisp industry. This long history and culture of innovation has resulted in us being involved in the development of two UK firsts in renewable technology.

With TATA steel, we helped develop the first Transpired Solar Collectors in the UK. The passive technology pre-heats air for the ventilation system and payback can be as little as three years. We designed and installed the UK’s first Water Source Heat Pump in open sea at Plas Newydd, Anglesey for the National Trust. The zero carbon technology saved them £30k a year
