Companies looking to perform a business energy price comparison in order to cut the amount they spend on gas and electricity, may find it is worthwhile to educate staff as to what they can do to help cut expenses in this area.
Director of Green Business UK Andrea Nicholas explained that increasing the awareness of workers could help cut energy bills by between ten and 20 per cent.
While comparing prices and switching to a cheaper tariff or supplier can be one of the most effective ways of cutting costs when a firm's contract is up, measures such as turning heating down and installing low energy light bulbs can also play a key part.
Ms Nicholas observed that businesses may also find they can increase their reputation and boost their customer base if they are seen to be eco-friendly.
She noted that in the tourism sector, for example, a growing number of hotel chains are signing up to the Green Tourism Business Scheme in order to make themselves more attractive to the corporate market.
