The Growing Importance of Decarbonisation

Sustainability is not just a buzzword, it is a business imperative. While 86% of companies have a sustainability strategy, translating those plans into action remains a significant hurdle. Despite recognising the importance of sustainability, only 35% of companies have actually implemented their strategies. This is where a commercial energy survey comes in.

Buildings are major energy consumers, contributing a staggering 39% of global energy-related carbon emissions. A surprising 87% of the U.K. office space has an EPC rating of ‘C’ or below, indicating significant room for improvement. Outdated equipment, draughts, leaky ductwork, and inadequate insulation all contribute to wasted energy and higher utility bills.

With rising energy costs and growing pressure to reduce environmental impact and carbon footprints, businesses need to find solutions to become more sustainable – and decarbonisation is the answer.

Beyond Environmental Responsibility: A Market Advantage

Decarbonisation isn’t just about environmental responsibility; it’s also a smart business decision. Today’s tenants are increasingly prioritising sustainability when searching for office space. Studies show that corporate occupiers are actively seeking buildings with a focus on carbon reduction in their next lease agreements. This means that by decarbonising your building, you’re not only doing your part for the environment, but you’re also gaining a competitive edge in attracting and retaining tenants.

Commercial Energy Survey: Your Roadmap to Decarbonisation

A commercial energy survey acts as a roadmap to your decarbonisation journey. It is a comprehensive assessment of your building’s energy consumption, pinpointing areas for improvement. Our qualified experts will conduct a thorough inspection to identify areas where energy is being wasted, including:

The problem could include anything, from inefficient lighting and outdated HVAC systems to air leaks in your building envelope.

Following the survey, we’ll provide you with a detailed report outlining areas for improvement. This report will become your roadmap to decarbonisation, highlighting cost-saving opportunities and actionable steps you can take to reduce your building’s energy consumption.

This allows you to create a clear and achievable action plan for reducing your environmental impact and improving your building’s energy efficiency – all of which contributes to a more sustainable and profitable business.
