Transcript

Are rising costs causing stress in your business?

You’re not alone. Many businesses like yours are wasting up to 20% of the energy they use.

Now, thanks to one tool, the energy you use to power your business is a cost you can control.

Using less energy also means you’re improving your carbon footprint.

And that can help you attract staff and customers who care about who they do business with.

Welcome to the Energy Management Journey tool.

There are just 3 steps you need to follow. It’s quick and easy to take action and the savings go straight into profit.

1. Work out what you need to know.

Just enter your sector, business size and energy spend, and tell us what you’re doing now to manage your energy use.

Our tool will tell you how much you could save, and where you should focus - what’s costing you the most, and what you can do about it.

2. Decide what action you’ll take.

Work out where you want to focus. Don’t waste time on small things, target bigger costs to get the most savings.

We’ll show you how you stack up against other businesses like yours and give you savings tips in a personalised plan.

We will provide management recommendations:

How you manage energy – plans, policies, budgeting etc.

And technical recommendations:

Technical actions like tuning boilers, replacing inefficient lighting etc

Whether you’re a manufacturing business or a small office, our tool can show you results suited to your sector. And the plan will be personalized to you based on the information you provide.

3. Get your staff to work with you

Your people are your best resource – getting them to help improve how your business operates and reduce its impact on New Zealand will help your workplace be a great place to work.

If you’re in a small office, find out what you can do at a glance.

Likewise, if you’re in a small industrial site we’ll show you good places to start.

You can also find out what other businesses are doing, in our case study showcase and make use of all the free resources, tools, and information on our website.

Excluding transport, businesses use about half the energy in NZ, and emit more than 40% of NZ’s energy-related CO2 emissions – so your business plays an important part in NZ’s future.

If every business took action to improve their energy efficiency – by using the Energy Management Journey tool – the country could save $1.6 billion each year!
