Historic and luxury shoe manufacturer based in Northampton with outlets around the UK, requires Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) complianc
Overview of ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme)
ESOS - an opportunity for your business
ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) presents a new and significant opportunity for large UK businesses.
What is ESOS?
New EU legislation, requiring member states to introduce a mandatory programme of energy audits for ‘large enterprises’. Initial audits must be undertaken by 5 December 2015.
Who or what are large enterprises?
Large organisations with more than 250 employees or a turnover in excess of €50m.
To be ESOS compliant, these large organisations will be required to review the total energy use from their business operations, including building energy use, transport energy use and industrial processes.
This is then translated down to an amount of energy used per employee and to identify potential measures that could save energy.
Another eco-stick and small carrot?
ESOS may be viewed as another costly enviro-compliance on top of existing CRC, Mandatory Carbon Reporting and Climate Change Levy. However, LEC have a broad team of specialist energy consultants that believe if you act now your business will be able to maximise paybacks and the merits of this mandatory scheme.
How can we help you?
LEC are accredited Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Lead Assessors.
