The importance of implementing energy-efficiency measures in order to reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment is well known, but for businesses there are several other reasons to make changes. Here are four benefits of making your business more energy efficient.

Reduce running costs

By upgrading old, inefficient equipment such as electric motors, pumps and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) plant and introducing variable-speed drives where appropriate, businesses can enjoy a considerable reduction on energy costs. In addition, return on investment can often be achieved in a matter of months.

Increase the market value of your premises

The predicted growth in demand for energy-efficient working spaces means buildings with efficiency measures already in place may be more desirable in the event that a business decides to sell.

Improve public perception of your business

Environmentally-responsible companies tend to be looked upon favourably by consumers, who are increasingly aware of the importance of an eco-friendly approach. Being able to promote the energy efficiency of your business significantly increases your brand image with both clients and the general public.

Improve the health and wellbeing of your staff

Improving the efficiency of HVAC systems within your building creates a more comfortable working environment and protects the health and wellbeing of employees. This in turn can increase productivity, lower absenteeism and reduce staff turnover rates, which helps to cut recruitment and training costs.
