Bitesize Lincs: Introduction to Energy Efficiency - Webinar
Energy efficient technology and environmental management systems are two sides of the same coin. Join this webinar to discover why installing only energy efficient technology is half a solution to the overall problem.
To improve resource efficiency and save money quickly, organisations will often opt for the installation of more efficient equipment. For example, upgrading from fluorescent to LED lighting. While installing more efficient equipment does present energy and financial savings, it only solves half of the problem. Without understanding how your organisation is using its resources through energy / environmental management, you are missing out on additional reductions and savings that could be realised without any extra investment.
In this webinar we will discuss the relationship that an Environmental Management System (EMS) and the installation of energy efficient technology have with each other, and why carrying out one without the other is only half a solution.
Speakers are Martin Slocombe, and Claire Lea.
