.....Why going carbon neutral increases productivity and maximises profitability.

Climate Emergency is now an accepted fact amongst all but the most extreme of commentators. The aim of keeping global temperatures below 1.5oC above pre-industrial levels is necessary and achievable.

The future of human prosperity demands action. The next generation demand action. The challenge is on a scale never-before appreciated.

There are many things that we can do as both individuals and corporations. With 11,900 companies now mandated to address their carbon emissions as a result of the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting legislation that came into force on 1 April 2019, See, forward thinking companies are stepping up and recognising the wellbeing benefits associated with improving the workplace environment. In many cases these impact directly and beneficially on the bottom line; the more forward thinking are already reaping those benefits.

Businesses that invest in bespoke energy and fuel efficiency solutions are able to present themselves as an Employer of Choice. Studies have shown that candidates applying for a role, often accept a lower financial package in exchange for a sustainable and environmentally proactive employer; For anyone under 35, sustainability and recycling are core values drummed into them from their primary years; quality of the environment and a feeling of being valued as an employee rank higher than salary.

A workplace that has an energy and travel policy, that rewards energy saving ideas, that acts to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions (and thereby its kWh and costs) through controls, technologies (e.g. lighting, heat and cooling), generation of energy (e.g. solar PV and Wind) and controls its fleet through technology, alternative fuels and managed telematics will be rewarded with positive publicity, improved air quality, a better working environment, carbon and cost savings and the recruitment, and retainment of, high value staff.

An effectively managed workplace environment and operation also has a positive effect on the health, concentration, engagement and wellbeing of employees; this not only improves productivity but can reduce absences due to ill health. A healthy, happy workforce will always be the most loyal and the most profitable.
