The UK’s Tank Storage Association (TSA) has launched its Energy Transition Charter to affirm the sector’s commitment to the UK’s climate neutrality targets.
The charter was developed in collaboration with the TSA’s 60 member companies engaged in bulk storage and energy infrastructure, which between them operate 302 terminals. The commitments within it cover encourage leadership, innovation, skills development, promotion and engagement.
Amongst other things, TSA members have pledged to reduce their carbon footprint, promote alternative energy sources and ensure security of supply. They will work with relevant stakeholders, regulators, technical bodies and institutions as they seek to achieve their objectives.
‘The TSA and its members are committed to leading from the front in the journey to net zero. With efforts already underway, the Energy Transition Charter highlights the sector’s ambitions to seize future opportunities. By working with regulators and other stakeholders to ensure an effective transition to alternative energy sources, and by supporting the development of future skills, guidance and standards necessary to safely manage changing processes and inventories, our sector is committed to playing its full part in the transformative journey ahead,’ says Peter Davidson, TSA executive director.
