Phil Winter, Hull Live Business Editor, reported yesterday that ‘Hull’s carbon dioxide emissions have dropped in the last year, as the city looks to position itself at the heart of the Humber’s net-zero ambitions.

In a UK Powerhouse report released by Irwin Mitchell on Monday, Hull was found to produce 4.1 kilotons of CO2 per person – down four per cent in just 12 months.

The figure meant Hull fared better than places including Leeds (5.1kt), Doncaster (6.7kt) and Newcastle (4.4kt).

Hull also triumphed when it comes to waste recycling, ranking fifth of anywhere in the UK, but performed badly for low emission transport and solar power generation.’

John Hudson, MD of Boston Renewables commented –

“Much to be proud of, but plenty still to do!

It’s great news for Hull to be ahead of other northern cities in the quest for the ‘holy green grail’, but we must all keep the pedal down to stay ahead.

Particular reference is made in the article to Hull’s poor take up of solar power generation.
