5 easy ways to cut your business’ carbon outputSave more now
Embrace green initiatives and reduce carbon output
All over the UK, businesses are making efforts to embrace green initiatives and cut the amount of carbon they emit.
This is being done not only to comply with government legislation but also because it can be a huge business benefit. Did you know, for example, that if a business focuses on being sustainable it is more likely to be profitable ? Or that companies with a green agenda are more attractive to consumers ?
So, with that in mind, it makes sense to understand the numerous tactics that your business can adopt to ensure you benefit fully from going green.
Choose good waste management facilities
Investing in effective waste management is a great way of keeping costs low, and also ensuring that material is recycled as much as possible. By keeping items out of the landfill, carbon emissions can be drastically reduced.
Utilise energy-efficient lighting
Energy-efficient lighting can make a huge difference when it comes to reducing carbon output. This also includes the idea of using sensors to track movement, which will ensure that lights are only used when absolutely necessary.
Insulate the office space
This is an obvious way to cut carbon emissions and save on energy costs, but it is something that many businesses overlook. In this regard, it is also essential to keep air conditioning usage to a minimum, and also to ensure that equipment is turned off when not in use.
Use sustainable products wherever possible
The gains associated with using sustainable products may not be massive, but it will certainly make a difference in the long term. If you can buy office stationery – printer paper or plastics, for example – that has been sourced sustainably, you will be making small gains, while also introducing purchasing habits that are environmentally friendly.
Look at changing energy suppliers
If you can cut your carbon emissions by choosing a business energy supplier that utilises greater levels of renewable energy generation, or find one that will come to your premises and carry out an audit to see where you can cut costs and minimise your energy requirements, you will be able to reap the rewards incredibly quickly.

Paul Kay was fantastic in securing us a great deal and explaining everything in full. Thanks and would wholeheartedly recommended.
Excellent service from Kenny in the Manchester office, he worked hard to find the best price for me and explained everything along the way.
Will definitely use him again in the future and would recommend.
I spoke to Paul Kay this morning who in the space of 30 mins looks to have halved my salon electric bill, he was personable, knowledgeable and honest. The proof will be seeing if the bills actually reduce and if so I will leave another review but so far an excellent service
I dealt with Utility Bidder over the past couple of days, amazing service and prompt. Paul Kay gave excellent customer service! would highly reccomend.
Without a doubt utility bidder has saved my sanity. They have sorted months of going around in circles with a supplier in under a week.

Rob says that thanks to the competitive rates secured by Utility Bidder in his studio, it would actually be cheaper to live there than at home! “We pay about £30 a month for gas during the winter and around £25 a month for electricity – and that’s despite having a lot of energy guzzling equipment such as studio lights and fan heaters. Our energy bills at home are far more expensive!”
