With the pressure on businesses to ‘go green’ growing stronger, more and more organisations all over the UK are taking action to cut their carbon emissions.
It’s a well-known fact that change starts from within, and while your business can make some immediate changes to reduce its carbon footprint right now, to achieve a significant difference, it may be the case that a more tailored solution is required to help your business become more efficient. With that in mind, one of the first steps towards sustainably developing your business and protecting yourself from current and future legislation is to undergo an environmental audit.
An environmental audit can help to highlight areas where changes could be made towards improving your carbon reduction efforts. What’s more, a reduction in carbon emissions usually comes with a reduction in business costs – so you’ve got nothing to lose.
Arranging an environmental audit
We don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’ solutions; and that’s why we tailor environmental audits according to your own specific needs. That’s not to say arranging an audit is difficult – all you’ve got to do is get in touch!
We can arrange a visit to your site – at a time to suit you – and conduct the audit without getting in your way.
Once we’ve completed the audit, we’ll provide you with:
- a comprehensive report detailing our assessment of the current state of your organisation
- specific recommendations for areas where improvements could be made; and guidance on how to implement these changes.
In some cases, the improvements we suggest can be brought about through simple employee behaviour changes. If this is the case, we can tailor an environmental awareness workshop designed to target the areas your business needs to work on.
If it turns out that the installation of energy efficiency equipment, such as voltage optimisers, would help further, we can advise on, and provide installation of the equipment for you. Not only would this lead to cost and carbon reduction, but it would provide you with peace of mind that your business is efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly.
