That’s according to the speakers from Food Manufacture Group’s energy webinar in this exclusive video filmed after the event yesterday (September 18).
Any business with more than 250 employees must comply with the mandatory energy efficiency assessments, required as part of ESOS.
But Martin Adams from the Energy Efficiency Deployment Office’s Department of Energy and Climate Change said small firms could use the framework in the legislation to help them cut costs from their businesses.
“ESOS provides a framework which is applicable to any size of organisation,” he said. “There’s significant potential in the SME sector and so we would encourage the ESOS framework and model to help them achieve energy efficiency savings.”
Watch this video to hear why Jes Rutter, md of energy efficiency specialist JRP Solutions, said there were “substantial opportunities” for small businesses that adopt the scheme.
In this video, Richard Clothier also outlines the potential benefits on brand reputation and cost that saving energy can bring a business.
