Boosting sustainability with new airbase solar panels

Addressing climate change is hugely important to us as a charity and we recognise our responsibility to reduce our environmental impact.

The installation of solar panels in Semington is part of our detailed Sustainability Plan, with work taking place throughout July across the south side of the airbase roof.

“It has never been more important for the charity to act against climate change. Whilst the part we play seems small, the collective effort will be for the good of us all."

Danielle Friend, director of finance and infrastructure

Our own sustainability strategy sets out a 68% reduction of carbon by 2030.

Although we have taken some steps to mitigate greenhouse gases, we aim to become a Net Zero organisation by 2050.

Achieving this not only benefits the environment but also offers financial advantages.
