The hospitality sector is responsible for over 3.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions per year. It is estimated thatenergy savings of up to 20%, equivalent to more than £200 million, are possible across the sector.
Taking action on climate change delivers energy cost reductions, enhanced reputation, satisfied and motivated employees and stakeholders, the ability to proactively manage regulatory compliance, and competitive leadership through planning business innovations.
A structured approach to reducing your carbon footprint by managing your heating and air conditioning consumption, one of the largest energy consumers and cost to your hotel, can save you a surprising amount on your energy bill.
Our approach is to help you make consistent savings throughout your hotel or hotel chain, with the same proven solution installed in every room that maximises your savings without impacting guest satisfaction. We give you theconfidence that you have the same standard of product and installations across your property or chain and also give you the calculators to work out and demonstrate your savings. This means that you can demonstrate a proven level of carbon reduction and, where applicable, use this to offset your CRC tax.
The Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is a mandatory carbon emissions reporting and pricing scheme to cover all organisations using more than 6,000MWh per year of electricity (equivalent to an annual electricity bill of about £500,000).
The CRC came into force in April 2010 and aims to significantly reduce UK carbon emissions not covered by other pieces of legislation. The primary focus is to reduce emissions in non-energy intensive sectors in the UK.http://www.savemoneycutcarbon.com
