With the increase in utility bills affecting the running of our businesses premises, attention is turning to reduce overheads and make our businesses greener.
- Research from the Centre for Economics & Business Research (CEBR) found that business costs rose by 3.2 per cent over the last 12 months – faster than the rate of inflation for UK households
- According to the Carbon Trust, twenty per cent of a typical business’s annual energy costs could be wasted on energy-inefficient equipment
- And Water2Business reports that toilets account for up to 90% of water use for offices and public conveniences
Through making a few changes to the bathroom and plumbing facilities within your business premises, you’ll save both water and energy, which will in turn lead to financial savings on your business overheads.
Small Business Saturday, a campaign highlighting small business success and shopping locally, will be here on Saturday (2nd December). While the day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.
