In the UK buildings are responsible for 29% of total carbon emissions.

In a market where energy prices can suddenly spike, it’s valuable to know that your business can withstand unpredictability because you have already invested in energy efficiency measures.

Not only can these measures cut costs, but they show your business is ready to reduce carbon emissions, help the environment and that you care about your customers and partners who are already taking action against climate change.

Post-COP26, many businesses are building their net-zero strategies to keep in sync with government legislation and commitments. A key part of any net-zero plan is energy efficiency because no business can reach net-zero if its energy is being wasted and used inefficiently.

We’ll also tell you more about the Energy Pioneer Award, and invite you to make an application for your company.

Our team is made up of experts with decades of combined experience working with Oxfordshire’s businesses to deliver tailored energy improvements for your premises.

There will be a Q & A session following speakers’ presentations.

Oxfordshire’s buildings are old, inefficient, and constantly wasting energy – and that includes our workplaces: offices, warehouses, manufacturing plants etc.

This is leaving your businesses with high energy bills that damage your bottom line, workplaces that are uncomfortable and damaging for the environment too.
