How Corporations Can Make Efficiency Savings and Improve Sustainability

23rd January 2024

In the current economic environment, corporations are looking for ways to make their operations more efficient in order to meet financial and environments objectives. As the impact of climate change becomes more apparent and businesses look to bolster their green credentials along with handling the effects of significant increases in energy prices, this issue has become a greater priority.

Corporations with large or multiple buildings, sites or customer-facing operations have the most opportunities to make efficiencies.

Commercial appliances

A way of making energy savings is to look at upgrading your commercial equipment, including on-premises kitchens, laundry rooms and facilities for staff or customers.

Newer and more efficient equipment is a great way of making savings and bolstering ESG commitments, as technology evolves and becomes more efficient over time. Sourcing high quality and eco-friendly equipment, such as an industrial washing machine, tumble dryer or commercial oven can make an immediate impact on energy usage.

Innovations such as smart technology on an industrial washing machine where unique absorption intelligence delivers optimum water, energy and detergent consumption on every cycle. This ensures the machine is optimised for each wash depending on the size of the load to reduce operating costs.

Continuous servicing and maintenance on commercial appliances is also critical to ensure issues affecting efficiency are addressed.

Heating systems

Newer generation commercial boilers can deliver a significant and immediate difference in energy usage and operational costs. Replacing older boilers and HVAC systems with modern equivalents is an ideal way of maintaining current operations and practices, whilst yielding a significant impact.

While gas-powered boilers remain a go-to for most businesses, some organisations are looking at other options as a means of future-proofing their operations and reducing their carbon footprint. One of the best options for eco-conscious businesses looking to reduce their energy-related overheads are hybrid heating systems.

These next-generation appliances combine the power and reliability of standard gas boilers with the energy efficiency of air-source heat pumps, delivering energy- and cost-saving benefits without compromising on performance and day-to-day efficiency.

A hybrid heating system is capable of meeting peak demand while using significantly less energy overall. Even better, you won’t have to replace your existing pipework or radiators. Whilst not as widespread as gas boilers, hybrid solutions are increasing in popularity, these alternative commercial heating solutions are certainly worth considering.

Reviewing your operation

In order to make the best long-term savings it is vital to assess each element of your corporation and create a long-term strategy aimed to reducing energy usage. This includes buildings, fleet, internal processes, employee practices, appliances, packaging, waste and the supply chain.

Whilst each industry has unique challenges, critical actions can make a big impact to the environment and operational costs.
