Reducing energy in practical steps

Expert guidance to reduce energy, save money and reduce carbon emissions.

Uk business waste

The department for business, energy and industrial strategy (beis) estimated that british businesses wasted £15.6bn of energy in 2020.


Carbon emissions

In 2020, energy waste from inefficient hvac and lighting systems in the uk’s commercial and public buildings was thought to be equivalent to 8.4m tonnes of co2 emissions, according to the energy savings trust.


The largest contributors to energy waste in uk businesses were lighting (22%) and heating (20%) in 2020, reported by beis.

Driven to act by

Rising energy costs and the climate emergency


There are few who would argue against the need for – or the benefits of – reducing energy wastage and improving efficiency. Analysts predict that a period of high energy prices is set to continue this decade. At the same time, the race to reduce carbon emissions and meet sustainability goals brings its own imperative for action.

First, it’s necessary to identify how energy is being used in your organisation. This is often a complex task, but an essential starting point to reduce energy, costs and carbon.

Experts by your side

Commercial’s team of sustainability experts will assess your site’s energy consumption, identifying every possible opportunity to reduce energy consumption, costs and carbon

Identify waste

If you don’t know the source of inefficiency, you can’t fix it. Our experts bring their technical knowledge and careful analysis to assess all the energy consuming systems on your site.

This includes heating, air conditioning, ventilation, it equipment and lighting.

Understand your ROI

Implementing energy efficiency measures requires a level of investment, which may include replacing equipment, introducing new systems or processes, or updating the fabric of older buildings.

When making investment decisions, you’ll want to know what the returns will be, in financial and carbon savings.

Make changes stick

Human behaviour is one of the biggest factors in reducing energy consumption, from the easy wins to the long-term embedding of more energy efficient ways of working.

Commercial brings experience in employee-led change programmes, alongside our technical analysis, providing the kind of practical solutions that keep delivering.

Solving your challenges

Reducing power consumption is an intricate challenge, particularly if your organisation is split across multiple sites, incorporating many kinds of usage. Whether offices, warehouses, manufacturing plants or retail spaces, power reduction is a crucial part of any sustainability journey. Our expert team is here to guide you, step by step.

Lack of awareness

We can’t see it, so it can be difficult to know where energy is being wasted, or what to do when you discover the answer. Few businesses have the technical expertise within their inhouse teams.

Regulatory uncertainty

If your organisation has more than 250 employees, or a turnover of more than £44m, then you’re bound to comply with the mandatory energy assessment scheme introduced by the government, the energy savings opportunity scheme (ESOS). Our expert team can help you navigate these regulations.

Complexity of energy use

The energy consuming systems in a business can be complex, and the ways to improve them may seem difficult to grasp. Where to start? We’ll build a practical plan and communicate it clearly, so that you can make well-informed decisions.

Staff engagement

Employees have a huge role to play in energy efficiency and sustainability measures. We’ll support you with tried and tested ways to engage your people, helping them to feel empowered to save power.

Save money

With wholesale prices unlikely to return to pre-pandemic levels before 2030, efficiency measures implemented now will have a payback in typically around two years, contributing a healthy return on investment.

Save carbon

Reducing energy consumption is one of the simpler ways of reducing carbon emissions as we move towards net zero targets, because it’s about changing what’s in your control.

Grow engagement

As many as 83% of employees say they are more likely to remain with their employer if it takes action on sustainability and carbon reduction.

Win business

In many sectors, sales increase when action is taken on sustainability and carbon reduction. That’s growth happening in retail (up 10.5%), food and drink (6.2%), manufacturing (7.3%) and financial services (4.2%).

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.
