ENGAGEMENT AND AWARENESS
The Carbon Trust estimates that 21 % of all energy usage in UK businesses is wasted*. A good energy and carbon management strategy can have financial benefits, as well as being excellent for your reputation. Effective programmes to raise staff awareness can not only reduce your company’s overhead costs – typically delivering around 10 % energy savings – but can also improve staff morale and combat the effects of climate change.
However, engaging the vital stakeholders in the decision-making processes from the outset is vital, especially if this means a cultural shift for the organisation. It is therefore important to develop a structured approach to education and awareness, mobilising your workforce to help you deliver a successful energy efficiency strategy.
