How can sustainability help future proof your business?
23rd August 2018
With more of the world’s leading businesses using sustainable measures to future-proof their organisation, is it time for you to follow suit?
Businesses are adapting to a future impacted by climate change, finite resources and volatile energy prices. For energy intensive businesses, power failures can cause massive losses. From Apple to IKEA, from BMW to Marks and Spencer, more and more of the world’s leading companies are choosing sustainable ways to meet future challenges.
Renewable energy is just one way to play your part in the struggle to control climate change. Many have also already signed up to the UN’s Climate Neutral Now initiative, through which they commit to reducing their carbon footprint.
These businesses are making choices like this in order to future-proof themselves. That means they are anticipating what is likely to happen in the years to come, and finding ways to reduce the impact of the negative effects, as well as to increase the benefit of positive ones. Sustainability is at the heart of this agenda – because without a viable future on our planet, future-proofing any business would be impossible.
As Richard Branson says: “Successful businesses are the ones that find ways to adapt to change, no matter which direction it comes from.”
Here are some of the ways Haven Power can help your business adapt and thrive:
Future proof against price volatility
As the energy market becomes more volatile, one way companies are protecting themselves against price shocks is through self-generation. Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) are also helping businesses to future proof against market volatility while supporting renewable generation in the UK.
Future proof against energy uncertainty
Self-generation, especially when it is backed up with battery storage is one way to ensure that your business can always call on the energy you need, whenever you need it.
By investing in solar pv or wind generation, you can reduce the risks associated with blackouts and power failures. Your business could even make money from your investment, by selling surplus electricity back to the Grid as a prosumer.
You don’t have to be a massive multinational business to benefit from sustainability.
