Business energy customers could save £6 billion a year in energy efficiency measures, a new report has calculated.
According to Carbon Connect's Energy Efficiency: The Untapped Business Opportunity report, companies can save money and reduce their carbon emissions by investing in a few simple changes.
One of the recommendations made by the report is for businesses to appoint a non-executive director to take responsibility for raising energy saving opportunities at board level and to make use of the numerous grants available for purchasing low-energy equipment.
Commenting on the findings, Hugh Jones, managing director of Carbon Trust Advisory Services, said: "The business case for energy efficiency is clear and compelling.
"Few other investments get anywhere near that rate of return, yet our data suggests big businesses are leaving around half the investment opportunities on the table and continuing to waste billions of pounds on unnecessary energy use every year," he added.
Over the last few years, our customers have saved an average of £2,300 a year. Contact us today on 0800 970 26 26 to find how much you can save.
