Prepare for Changes

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme Regulations – ESOS
New legislation requiring large companies to audit their energy usage has recently been introduced; ESOS affects up to 10,000 businesses in the UK.All large companies (>250 employees or turnover >€50 million) will have to complete an assessment of their energy consumption every four years. Energy audits must be done (or approved) by an approved Lead ESOS Assessor, producing a list of “cost-effective efficiency measures”, and signed off by the Board. The first audit must be completed & reported to Env Agency by December 2015.The New Draft ISO 14001
ISO 14001 is currently being reviewed, for release in 2015. Some of the key changes include:

  • Leadership and truly embedding sustainability into the organisation
  • Environmental performance across the value chain
  • External conditions (e.g. adapting to climate change).

Start thinking now about how to incorporate the new changes into your system. There is more info on the website.
