Commercial Energy Efficiency: what are you doing to contribute?

It simply makes sense, that the place in which people spend the majority of their day – the workplace – engages with energy efficiency as well as possible. Going green is as important as ever. Ignoring its growing presence will not bode well with not only your business’s employees but your clients too. Commercial energy efficiency has become an important factor in corporate responsibility and what better place to start than in your office space?

Did you know that office buildings account for over 30% of commercial building energy use? This means that every day, your business can be responsible for ensuring that it does its bit for commercial energy efficiency. Owning an office space allows for more freedom when it comes to retrofitting and ensuring that your  premises are “green”. However, renting commercial office space doesn’t mean that you should forget about being energy efficient. It is important to look for third party certificates and awards when enquiring about energy efficiency involvement. Although a building might be marketed as being energy efficient, “greenwashing” is a popular tactic used to lure businesses in and make them believe that the property is “green”. Obtaining the relevant paperwork is important.

Although you might be aware of commercial energy efficiency, you might not completely understand the benefits in it for your business.

  • Saving energy helps protect the environment
  • Huge effect on your business’s bottom line
