How simple changes can reduce the amount of energy your business produces

Climate change is a hot topic in today’s news, not only in the UK, but further afield as well.

We’re all being urged to make changes to our homes and lifestyle to help reduce our carbon emissions and create a healthier living space for the world’s population and for generations to come.

When it comes to the changes we can make to reduce our carbon emissions, most people shy away from the subject because they’re led to believe the changes need to be big and will come at a cost.

This isn’t always the case as there are a number of small changes you can make not only around your home but your place of work as well, which will help you improve your carbon footprint and save money at the same time.

There’s a large focus on how businesses across the globe can do their bit to lower the amount of energy they use.

As well as benefiting the environment, it will also lower the amount each business is spending on bills such as gas and electricity. Hearing that simple changes around your place of work can lower monthly bills, will surely appeal to business owners across the country.

To prove how simple some of the changes can be, we wanted to share some of them with you.

Search for the best energy provider


To begin, you want to make sure you’re paying the best price possible when it comes to your energy provider.

More often than not businesses will stick with their current energy provider out of convenience, but energy brokers, like Utility Bidder, can help your business find the best gas and electricity deal.

It’s important you shop around for the best energy contract and not stay with your current provider because it seems the best option at the time. Switching to a new provider could save you a large amount of money.

Install energy-saving light bulbs

Many offices across the country have opted for LED lighting and this change alone can reduce your electricity prices significantly. Not only is this an economical option, LED lighting can also better the work environments.

Large amounts of people found that the light can be too bright, causing discomfort. LED manufacturers took this on board and added the ability to display a range of colour temperatures to the LED lights.

This now means that workers don’t feel the brightness of the light is too harsh and can work in a more pleasing environment.

Here are just two simple changes that can reduce the amount of energy your business produces, as well as saving you money at the same time.

By looking at these points, you can see how making a number of small changes can reduce your carbon emissions and benefit you financially.
