Gaining opportunities through compliance

Guidance to meet mandatory ESOS assessments and save on energy costs.

Saving firms money
ESOS is estimated to save UK businesses at least £1.6bn in energy costs by 2030.

Further ESOS impacts
Phase 3 changes are estimated to save an additional £1.12 billion over 2023-2027 through reduced energy bills.

Reduced energy usage
Energy savings in 2023-2027 are estimated at 28TWh – more than the total net electricity imported by the UK in 2021 (25TWh).


Our expert team will guide you through audit and compliance


ESOS, or Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme, is a mandatory energy assessment and energy-saving programme for large UK-based companies of more than 250 employees with a turnover in excess of £44m. Under this scheme, businesses are required to carry out energy audits every four years to identify opportunities for improving energy efficiency and reducing energy consumption. Compliance with ESOS is essential for affected businesses to avoid fines and penalties and to improve their bottom line by reducing energy costs across transport, buildings and processes.

Practical implementation

While compliance may be mandatory for larger organisations – with fines for failing to produce an energy audit – there’s a multitude of benefits to be gained from the process and plenty of support from Commercial to maximise those gains.

Energy efficiency

Commercial’s expert consultants will provide insight and recommendations for energy efficiencies throughout your sites and operations, saving energy and money.

Sustainability goals

We’ll work with you to plan and implement improvements that will reduce your carbon emissions and contribute to your company-wide sustainability goals.

Added value

Demonstrating your commitment to reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions can enhance your reputation with all your stakeholders.

Common challenges

With so much riding on ESOS compliance, the process can feel a little daunting. These are the most common challenges that Commercial helps clients to overcome.

Lack of technical expertise

ESOS compliance can be complex and require technical expertise in energy efficiency, auditing, and compliance. It may be difficult to identify the right inhouse expertise, so engaging external consultants with a track record of experience can provide the necessary support and peace of mind.

Time constraints

Compliance with ESOS can be time-consuming, requiring businesses to allocate time and resources for energy audits, data collection, and reporting. Clients may struggle to balance these requirements with their day-to-day business operations. Expert project management from Commercial’s consultants will keep everything on track.

Investment decisions

Developing an action plan to reduce energy consumption may require investment in new processes, technologies, resources, or equipment. Careful planning and expert knowledge of this sector will support each organisation to make informed decisions that will generate a return on investment.

Lack of awareness

Finally, some clients may not be aware of the ESOS scheme, its requirements, or the changes the government is making as the scheme develops, making it challenging for them to understand the value of compliance or identify the support they need to comply. Commercial’s expert team will guide you through every step.

Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
