UK firms could save £300m a year by engaging staff in sustainability
UK workplaces are missing out on more than £300m a year in savings that could be achieved by engaging employees in energy efficiency and waste reduction, according to new research, writes Edie.net.
Released by the Carbon Trust, the research highlights how fewer than half of UK employees are concerned about the cost of energy for their employer, while less than a quarter have been asked to help save energy at work.
The research also shows a significant disconnect between employee behaviour at home and at work. Increases in energy prices are seeing 92% of workers concerned about the cost of energy at home, but the figure drops to 47% when it comes to the cost of energy for their employer.
