UK: Ground-source heat pump manufacturer Kensa has chosen Black Friday to turn London’s iconic London Eye green.
The cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames, a zero-carbon electric tourist attraction, has been turned green using 100% LED lighting to symbolise the impact of embracing sustainability.
The green switch-on follows Truro-based Kensa’s delivery of a plan to help the UK reach net zero by 2050 to an audience of MPs, government bodies and other influential individuals at the House of Commons, yesterday.
The Kensa plan calls for the rapid decarbonisation of heating and cooling with networked heat pumps, as part of wider efforts to help to make Great Britain Green.
“To become a Green and Great Britain we need to think consciously about all our choices and how they can impact our progress towards net zero and support British-made goods, services and experiences. We need to do more to champion green growth which will help boost our economy and create thousands of green jobs right here in Britain,” said Kensa Group CEO Dr Matt Trewhella.
“Green Friday is a great time for reflection and an opportunity for consumers, businesses and government to question what they are doing to help us on the road to net zero,” he added.
