How to save energy and money at work

The cost-of-living crisis has affected us all, but that doesn’t mean your business has to suffer unnecessarily. With a few easy tips and tricks, you can save a substantial amount of energy and money, all whilst improving your company’s sustainability policy and being more eco-friendly.

No matter how small or large your business is, there’s one issue that everyone is currently facing and struggling with; climate change. 2022 brought plenty of reminders of the increasingly severe consequences of the climate crisis, including the unprecedented heat waves in Europe and the U.S. The U.N Foundation has highlighted the irreversible consequences of climate change and how its impacts continue to worsen.

These severe environmental impacts are a priority for many people. In fact, customers are demanding more visibility in companies’ sustainability practices, being eco-friendly is more important than ever.

But it’s not just customers to consider, employees are concerned with companies’ climate impact. In fact, over a third of UK employees would be willing to quit their jobs if their employers didn’t attempt to reduce their carbon footprint. This percentage is much higher amongst Gen-Z, where 45% said they’d consider resigning if the company didn’t match their own corporate values. Former Unilever chief executive Paul Polman stated how we’re “living through an unprecedented moment in human history”, and that “younger employees especially fear for the world they will inherit”.

And replacing talent is not cheap, on average, replacing a team member can cost £30,614. And that doesn’t even account for the loss in productivity, as well as time spent recruiting and onboarding. Particularly, when this could be used to help your business thrive.

Whilst embracing sustainable practices is beneficial for the environment, it’s also beneficial for your business; the cost-of-living crisis has affected all of us. And now you may be thinking, how much money can we really save by being sustainable?

Turns out, quite a bit!

 

Did you know that turning the thermostat down just one degree can save over £100 per year?
