A surprising number of UK businesses do not realise the financial, resource-efficiency and environmental benefits of sustainable business building and growth. Quite often the underlying reason is a lack of ownership at senior level.
Utility and energy costs are usually considered as operating costs, and get delegated downwards in the business to operational teams. Often leaders and managers do not see the invoices or contracts, or even the overall yearly consumption and cost figures of energy and other utilities. Many business owners or leaders do not even know who is responsible for the energy budget, let alone how to optimise the contract prices for best value, whether consumption is increasing or not, or if the invoicing and cost control is accurate and efficient.
Now is the time for change. Make sure your business has efficient processes and systems in place to stay on top of your energy consumption and costs. A combination of our services can help you achieve this, from invoice validation and basic consumption reporting, to more in-depth monitoring and targeting, or an advanced energy management system.
You could consider alternative sources of energy to become less reliant on the grid, such as local electricity generation or alternative methods of heating, particularly where no mains gas is available.
