Your questions answered

How do I reduce the energy bills for my business?

A good place to start is by getting to grips with exactly what the bills are right now, any fluctuations within them, and looking at whether any measures you’ve already put in place have shown a positive result. The next step is to identify energy hot spots - so looking into ways of being able to obtain granularity in energy consumption data. From there we can identify biggest areas for improvement.

A way to make an impact quickly can be introducing things like LED light-bulbs, but the biggest changes often come through things like redesigning manufacturing processes and introducing efficiencies on the factory floor. Our experts can carry out independent surveys of your facilities, helping to spot opportunities for change, and creating a sustainability roadmap. 

We’re only a small business, can we still get sustainable manufacturing support from you?
