Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

Making a positive difference to the communities and environment we live and work in.

 

We're proud to be the partnering with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as their Nature and Carbon Neutral supporter

We’re excited to be partnering with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as their Nature and Carbon Neutral Supporter.

As part of our biggest ever nature project, our Great Big Nature Boost, we’re helping to make Birmingham 2022 the first ever carbon neutral Commonwealth Games.

We’ll be helping achieve this through two fantastic forest projects.

Funding the partnership

Customer bills will not rise to fund this partnership project.

Any increase in customer bills is part of the annual pricing review which is controlled and agreed by Ofwat.

You can download our scheme of charges [PDF] for a full explanation of how household bills are calculated for 2021 to 2022.

Carbon offsetting

Working closely with the Forestry Commission for guidance, we are using the UK woodland code methodology to calculate and validate the offset of the residual carbon emissions of the games in order to create a long-term legacy that would offset the games to make them carbon neutral.

Accreditation will be completed once the trees have been planted.
