Finding your energy saving 'Opportunity'
Are you one of 5,948 organisations that hit the ESOS deadline? Perhaps you're one of the 1,000 that have told the Environment Agency you intend to comply. Or (heaven forbid) you're one of the 3,000 still in the dark.
Whatever your current ESOS compliance status, it is what happens next that really matters. If acted upon, your ESOS audit could be a golden ticket to huge energy savings. Take a look at Salford Royal Hospital, which - on ESOS deadline day - revealed it will slash £1.9m from its annual energy bill thanks to a new energy efficiency programme.
And if you're still not convinced by the 'Opportunity' in ESOS, we'll be running our own webinar on that very subject later this month (full details here).
Elsewhere this week, we've seen a flurry of ambitious sustainability initiatives - from Heathrow trialling zero-emission driverless cars and Easyjet developing a hybrid 'plane of the future' through to Lidl going 100% sustainable with its bananas and The Body Shop turning greenhouse gases into packaging.
Proof, if we ever needed it, that the green industrial revolution is really starting to motor.Luke Nicholls
