Saving energy and reducing emissions makes sound business sense. From bottom line cost savings through to improved reputation, reducing consumption has no downsides. However, in order to promote these activities further, government legislation in many countries is now forcing organisations to reduce emissions through mandatory building energy auditing and energy performance certification.
With extensive experience of conducting energy and carbon audits, M&C is ideally placed to carry out mandatory audits and to assess performance certificates. Where these activities require accreditation to the certifying bodies, M&C is continually adding new accreditations to our portfolio and hold the necessary credentials to undertake most of the major European schemes currently operating.
Good energy management starts with high-level commitment. One way to achieve and demonstrate that commitment both internally and externally is through an up-to-date, comprehensive and relevant energy policy. Furthermore, where organisations have made significant inroads into emission reduction, it is only natural that they should seek recognition with one of the many schemes designed for that purpose.
