To kick off your fast track to success, it’s important for any business to regularly review its energy efficiency and engage your employees to support cost efficiency and be aware of their environmental impact.

The Carbon Trust produces useful guides and handouts giving advice to help you cut carbon and save money across a wide range of sectors. You could motivate your team to think about energy saving by having a volunteer ‘Green Hero’ or ‘Energy Champion’; someone in your organisation who can share energy-saving ideas, implement recycling programmes and motivate their colleagues to help save energy, while making it fun!

Considering green or renewable energy can also support your Corporate Social Responsibility agenda. There are also lots of financial incentives that most small businesses can benefit from and different options to consider.

If you’re part of a larger organisation, you should consider regulation such as the Climate Change Levy and the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme, Phase 2. You should also make sure your renewable energy provider can provide your organisation with the correct documentation such as certificates of renewable energy guarantees of origin. Renewable electricity plans from British Gas are also certified by the Carbon Trust.

There are lots of different options that can help you to get your business fit for the new year, including lots of quick wins. So keep an eye on the British Gas business blog to get more useful hints and tips for your fast start for 2019!
