BSW Timber Solutions Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Project

Last updated: 8th November 2023

“The level of support was excellent, Beyondly are always happy to help with any queries and always go above and beyond what’s expected all for a competitive price. Our last ESOS assessment highlighted more opportunities for potential energy savings than was expected, therefore we look forward to beginning our ESOS phase 3 assessment this year.” Quality Manager, BSW Timber Solutions Ltd


BSW Timber Solutions have been a loyal packaging member of Beyondly’s since 2010, and over the years have utilised a multitude of our services to better engage their business with a range of obligatory environmental initiatives. These additional services include the legislative annual Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) and each phase of the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).

The opportunity

BSW Timber Solutions supply timber and timber-based products to the UK DIY & builders merchant markets, operating across 4 sites in the UK. They ensure all their products are from legal, ethical, and sustainable sources and work alongside their customers to reduce plastic packaging. In addition to this, they are now looking into projects that consider their companies waste streams and packaging resource.

With over a decade of support from Beyondly on the packaging compliance front, Beyondly’s consultancy services were able to further support BSW Timber Solutions as they grew, as they become obligated for both SECR and ESOS. With an existing strong understanding of their business, the sustainability team at Beyondly were able to effectively ensure compliance with both legislations and highlight a range of potential energy saving opportunities, which in the current economy is becoming paramount to businesses.

The Solution

Looking specifically at Phase 2 of the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme, Beyondly:

  • Worked closely with chosen lead assessor (trained by the Energy Institute toits highest European Energy Manager level)
  • Conducted a kick off call to understand the full scope of the project and company energy use, including electricity, gas, and fleet.
  • Carried out an energy assessment to identify opportunities to increase efficiency
  • Presented findings to and achieved sign off by company director
  • Submitted a notification of compliance to the Environment Agency
