Get ex­pert ad­vice to be re­source ef­fi­cient

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Business -

LO­CAL com­pa­nies are be­ing en­cour­aged to reg­is­ter for a free taster work­shop which has been de­signed to help them re­view and im­prove their en­vi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance and de­liver cost sav­ings to their busi­ness as a re­sult.

The EMS Club, the lat­est busi­ness sup­port ser­vice de­liv­ered by Re­source Ef­fi­ciency East, will be hold­ing the work­shop at the Wy­boston Con­fer­ence Cen­tre, in St Neots, on June 25 to give busi­nesses an in­sight into the types of topics cov­ered and sup­port avail­able dur­ing the club’s 10-month pro­gramme.

Busi­nesses which sign up to the club fol­low­ing the taster ses­sion can then at­tend the club’s free half-day ses­sions once a month to re­ceive the prac­ti­cal sup­port needed to build an En­vi­ron­ment Man­age­ment Sys­tem (EMS) and help iden­tify long-term cost sav­ings.

Antony Gough, di­rec­tor of Re­source Ef­fi­ciency East, said: “The EMS Club was cre­ated af­ter we found that whilst small busi­nesses will of­ten ben­e­fit from adopt­ing an EMS, many lack the knowl­edge and time to im­ple­ment such a sys­tem un­aided. The club will be run by ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als well versed in the sub­ject who have the abil­ity to share this knowl­edge in a straight­for­ward man­ner.”

Places on The EMS Club pro­gramme are limited to 15, and in­ter­ested busi­nesses are en­cour­aged to check el­i­gi­bil­ity for the pro­gramme by vis­it­ing www. re­source­ef­fi­cien­cyeast. org.uk/the-ems-club.asp or call­ing Re­source Ef­fi­ciency East on 01733 294524.

Mean­while, busi­nesses are also be­ing urged to look at be­com­ing more wa­ter wise dur­ing Na­tional Wa­ter Sav­ing Week, from June 12-18.

The cam­paign seeks to raise aware­ness of the ben­e­fits of wa­ter sav­ing at home, in busi­nesses and in schools, as well as help­ing wa­ter users to re­think their at­ti­tude to wa­ter and re­alise the im­por­tance of be­ing wa­ter wise. Statis­tics show that na­tional av­er­age wa­ter con­sump­tion per per­son per day is about 150 litres, while in­dus­try and com­merce in the UK con­sume 1300 mil­lion m3 of wa­ter ev­ery year.

As part of its com­mit­ment to re­duc­ing re­gional wa­ter use, Re­source Ef­fi­ciency East is help­ing small busi­nesses in the re­gion to ad­dress this is­sue by of­fer­ing a free re­view that aims to iden­tify mea­sures which could be im­ple­mented in or­der to re­duce wa­ter use and save money as a re­sult.
