Net Zero Week 2022
tpgroup supports Net Zero Week 2022. This annual event is a government-supported initiative to drive momentum in the UK’s journey to zero emissions – encouraging changes in how individuals, homes and businesses use energy. The event takes place 2-8 July 2022.
Supporting Net Zero
tpgroup is committed to understanding and reducing its impact on the environment. Like many organisations, we recognise that we are at an early stage on the journey to net zero and have made some steps forward.
Many of our businesses are accredited to ISO 14001, which is the environmental management system. We are reviewing our carbon footprint across the Group to understand how we can offset this in a balanced way without impacting the performance of the business.

Our services are helping to advance Net Zero. Read about our work below:
As part of Project HEART (Hydrogen Electric and Automated Regional Transportation), Osprey will develop hydrogen powered, automated and remote piloting solutions for small aircraft carrying between nine and 19 passengers, travelling ‘short hops’ of fewer than 500 nautical miles. The ambition is to provide hydrogen fuelling facilities at up to 100 licensed airfields throughout the UK and the initiative is expected to enter service in 2025.
Supporting the MOD to Net Zero
TPG Services, our UK consulting business, has used cost-estimating techniques to understand the current and future fossil fuel needs of the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD). Our study incorporated a review of previous science and technology research and trials into the reduction of the use of fossil fuels. Over 200 fuel efficiency and alternative energy options were identified, covering equipment throughout the air, land and maritime domains and Defence infrastructure.
Osprey is providing certification support and regulatory advice as part of the DragonFLY consortium. Project DragonFLY is a ground-breaking initiative funded by the Welsh Government European Regional Development Fund to develop a hybrid electric/hydrogen powered aircraft in support of an exciting new era of cleaner, greener aviation initiatives achieved through innovative industry collaboration. We are working with the leading partner Cardiff University and other consortium partners to develop a certification roadmap for hybrid aircraft that will form a foundation for future electrical aircraft and help the aviation sector on its journey to a more sustainable future.
