Energy and water

Reducing energy and water use is easy to measure, reduces your negative impact on the environment and saves money. It’s a great place to start your ELT climate action.

Reviewing and refining your energy use and devices for maximum conservation and efficiency can be an especially good place to start if your organisation is not very green minded – the business case is easy.

Another quick and easy first step to greening your ELT centre is switching to a green energy supplier. Look for a company that provides 100% renewable energy and invests in renewable energy sources.
