Social Impact

At Boston Energy we care and fully understand that we are only as strong as the communities in which we trade.

In 2021, Boston Energy became a sponsor of East Yorkshire Puffins Galore initiative, sponsoring local artist, Hannah Watson’s puffin design, which raises awareness of climate change and the importance of renewable energy. The puffin trail was created to not only encourage tourists and regular visitors to spend more time in the area but also raise awareness of the puffin and other endangered species and coastal wildlife that lives there.

Helping Our Planet

Net Zero Commitment

Boston Energy along with our sister company Boston Renewables are all about wanting to support the world in dealing with climate change and lowering carbon emissions. It’s what we’re here for.

At Boston Energy, we have committed to a Net Zero Path and are beginning our journey down the road to sustainability, looking at how we can reduce and remove the fossil fuels used in our normal operations generating CO2 for our daily lives and operations, be they scope 1, scope 2 or scope 3 emissions.

At our HQ, we are also establishing a task force to examine routes to reducing and eliminating CO2 generation from all our activities. The core will be to establish a baseline of carbon emissions, then with that baseline established determine routes to minimise, & where possible, over time eliminate carbon levels.
