Based on our annual Green Gap report, where Tandem collates data charting UK consumers’ intention to ‘go green’ over the following 12 months and then tracks actual changes in behaviour over the same period), this monthly tracker gives a snapshot for how the data is moving.
James Streeter, Head of ESG at Tandem commented:
“It’s promising to see the gap continue to close as more and more action is taken in the fight against climate change. But as we know, the pace of action is yet to keep up with intentions – and our green gap continues to illustrate a gap of 19.8pt by our next annual report in October 2024.
The underlying drivers of our index also show a promising picture. I’m particularly pleased to see rail journeys jump significantly – 47million more journeys across the quarter – as well as the share of renewable energy up to almost 50%.
But as our research shows, consumers need confidence in making the switch. Tandem’s will continue to support with our expertise, tools and support, but we need further commitments from Government – let’s hope we’ll see this soon as we head towards a general election.”
