Leading the way to net zero

Surrey has the highest concentration of energy companies in the South East of England. As these companies pivot towards renewable energy, they are poised to not only elevate their technical expertise but also to solidify their reputation as leaders in environmental stewardship. This shift promises to invigorate the region with a renewed sense of purpose and sustainability.

Proudly Home To WWF-UK

Surrey proudly hosts the headquarters of WWF-UK, a global leader in conservation, at their Living Planet Centre—one of the UK’s greenest buildings. This landmark not only underscores Surrey’s commitment to environmental stewardship but also serves as a beacon of sustainability and innovation in the region.
