Small Steps for Big Savings

Team GB’s historic achievements in the Rio Olympics, and going forward into the Paralympic Games, has been nothing short of legendary. The culmination of hard work and investment has helped to create a culture of success since the London Olympics in 2012.

The revolutionary concept of ‘marginal gains’ has also been recognised as one of the reasons why Team GB athletes have performed so well in Rio. This is the process in which small incremental improvements create a significant improvement when added together.

But could a similar approach be adopted by businesses to become more energy efficient?

Rising to the energy challenge

At ScottishPower, we’re encouraging businesses to be as energy efficient as possible. Most admit that being more energy efficient is something they should be doing but struggle to implement because they think it will be time consuming, costly and difficult.

What many business owners don’t realise is that reducing your energy consumption can be easier than you think.

Managing a business’ consumption is a simple way to reduce the amount of energy you use. By introducing a few small energy saving steps in to your everyday operations can make a big difference, and will help you to reduce your energy expenditure to save money which can be invested elsewhere in the business.

Remember that for every £1 of energy you save, it is £1 towards profit for your business.
