Invest in smarter technology
From energy-efficient LED lightbulbs right through to smart meters or even an integrated building management system, choosing the right tech could help slash your usage and your emissions.
Engage your staff
Sometimes, some basic behavioural change is all it takes. Encouraging or rewarding staff to build better habits (like switching off lights and equipment when not in use) can help with CO2 reduction.
Wise up to waste
At a commercial level, scaling back waste makes a huge difference. Recycling more, using food waste bins in canteens, printing less or introducing a plastic-free office are all effective carbon-reduction initiatives.
Plug any gaps
From repairing leaky window frames through to installing double-glazing or better insulation, there’s plenty businesses can do to fight heat loss. And for a small commercial premises, pay-back for draught-proofing is usually under five years.*

Check your systems
It’s a good idea to get your business’s heating system checked over regularly to make sure it’s operating properly. Servicing and maintenance make sure everything’s working as efficiently as it should.
Switch your off-grid energy supply
Still relying on oil or solid fuel? You could achieve a significant carbon emissions reduction just by switching to LPG. LPG is a lower-carbon alternative to oil and coal, with an emission intensity approximately 20% and 30 – 40% lower respectively.**
