The business benefits of going green with renewable power range from reducing your business costs to improving staff engagement levels and encouraging positive PR. Even so, some companies worry about the time and effort involved with implementing this.
Alternatively, your business may be concerned that your results aren’t as good as you were expecting. Whichever the case, quick wins are possible and we believe renewable energy is one of them.
Switching to renewable electricity (as opposed to using power generated from fossil fuels) can bring you a relatively impressive and speedy return. Sourced from generation such as biomass, solar or wind, renewable power can drastically decrease your CO2 output. The sustainably sourced biomass electricity we get from our parent company Drax, for example, produces over 80% less carbon emissions than coal. And this figure includes all the emissions from production, transportation and manufacturing.
We’re now supplying renewable power as standard – and we’re hearing about the positive results. For example, the renewable electricity we supply to holiday business Low Costa Mill is an important part of how it achieved its TripAdvisor Gold Eco Leader status. This industry recognition, fuelled by renewable power, is helping the family-run firm to attract ethical customers and creating new PR opportunities.
Incidentally, suppliers of renewable power have traditionally charged a premium for it – deterring many from choosing to go green. In contrast, we’re offering renewable power as standard, as we truly believe it’s good for the world as well as for your business.
