With the UK government now committed to cutting carbon emissions by 78% by 2035, there is growing pressure on businesses to be more sustainable and play their part in tackling climate change.
Driving Cost Efficiencies
Decision-makers know that reducing carbon emissions is also a way to cut costs, freeing up capital for projects elsewhere but are often unsure where to start. Did you know that switching to LED lighting is one of the simplest sustainability improvements and provides the fastest payback, with savings of anywhere between 60% to 90%?
The first step should be a survey of existing energy use across all your buildings (including leased facilities). Collecting accurate information about the energy being used to heat and illuminate everything and the related costs, is critical. The right data is the foundation for building a robust business case for energy efficiency changes – and will be invaluable in finding ways to pay for them.
Our research shows that while it costs around £25 to run a 60-watt standard light bulb for 10 hours a day for a year, the cost for an LED bulb is a little over £1.50 a year. What’s more, a traditional light bulb is likely to last between 1,000 and 2,000 hours, while LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours. The same LED technology makes similar savings possible for tube lighting too.
