Sustainability is no longer a mere buzzword to which companies can pay lip service – it’s an essential part of trading
Cardiff (PRWEB UK) 27 June 2013
A substantial premium has been set aside by the Treasury towards green energy projects according to Whitehall sources. In light of this news, PHS Washrooms advises companies on how to achieve their own environmental targets through reduced water use.
Climate change is rarely out of the headlines, and the subject looks set to stay firmly on the agenda for media organisations, politicians and the public.
The latest reports indicate that billions of pounds from the Treasury will be invested into green energy generation over the next five years.
For SMEs and corporate firms looking to save energy on a smaller basis, reducing water use at work is one achievable way to do so.
Keri Reynolds, Marketing Manager for PHS Washrooms, said: “It is great news that the government is looking to invest heavily in green energy in the future. If everyone took a greener approach to their company, customers, staff and the wider community can all benefit.
“Sustainability is no longer a mere buzzword to which companies can pay lip service – it’s an essential part of trading, and every company that wants to survive and succeed now includes it as part of their corporate social responsibility strategy.”
The Environment Agency states that many organisations pay higher water costs than necessary, and that by implementing simple water management plans, firms could reduce their water consumption by up to 80%.
PHS Washrooms believe that the bathroom is an area that energy saving schemes can easily be put into action. The company has a range of water saving products and washroom supplies that have delivered results for businesses and organisations across the UK.
Keri Reynolds said: “Our SMARTdriTM hand dryers are the most energy-efficient hand dryers available, using 90% less energy than traditional versions, drying hands in just 10 seconds.
“The Flush-wiser® WC Flush Control saves up to three litres of water per flush and is approved by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS), and the SaverTap converts taps to a push option to prevent them from being left running.
“By installing this sort of equipment in washrooms companies really can start to achieve their business and environmental ambitions, even if they do not have billions of pounds to invest in green energy saving plans.”
