Premier Business Centres introduced a sustainable energy program in 2012. Since the implementation of some simple changes, significant progress has been made.
Without having to make any capital investment and without having to reduce our service offering or, in fact, impact on our clients in any meaningful way, we have succeeded in reducing our energy consumption by 24%.
A key part of our Sustainability Strategy was the development and implementation of an ‘Energy Management Plan’ which included straightforward measures such as using power saving mode on computers and laptops, reducing waste by increasing recycling, switching off lights, closing windows and using air conditioning in the most efficient manner possible.
These simple changes have seen a reduction of 57 tons of carbon emissions across a 12 month period and a 24% decrease in energy consumption. This could not have been achieved without the support and cooperation of all of our clients who have contributed so greatly to our new green and energy efficient business Centres.
