Functionality of Energy Policies
An energy policy allows you to assess and improve the way that you use energy and identifies opportunities for your business to become more energy efficient. An energy policy should be a fundamental element of your business’s operations and should dictate how your energy budget will be spent.
A document written by the International Chamber of Commerce’s Commerce’s Commission on Environment and Energy states that energy policies “seek to identify opportunities, for example synergies for energy use across facilities, with the highest value and to share best practice across the organization. Where deployed, energy management systems have made significant improvements to efficiency and generated impressive financial returns”.
How an Energy Policy Will Benefit Your Business
- Lower energy costs – Creating an energy policy to make your business more energy efficiency will cut your energy costs considerably.
- Meet your environmental obligations – Becoming more energy efficient will help your business lower CO2 emissions.
- Increase productivity – Money saved from lower energy costs can be allocated to improving production and marketing activity which can give your business a competitive edge.
- Long-term risk management – Having an energy policy in place encourages a corporate culture that can effectively ease the risks that may occur in the future as energy costs continue to rise.
