Lansdowne Warwick offer expert environmental consultancy to assess business impacts and develop objectives and targets. Sustainability is increasingly being integrated into business planning for compliance as well as to balance the recognised benefits that can support other strategies and lead to improved performance and increased employee engagement.
Companies need to consider increased regulation together with opportunities to improve efficiency and save unnecessary costs, protect and enhance the brand and ensure competitiveness.
Lansdowne Warwick work with organisations to develop frameworks that assess the risks, identify the activities that result in high carbon emissions and significant environmental impacts, and offer bespoke strategies to create meaningful objectives and targets. The programme can integrate into the business, processes and supply chains and can lead to measurable improvements.
A well rounded organisation that considers its impacts on the planet and has its staff and other stakeholder’s wellbeing at the forefront of policy making will ensure a healthier environment, increased productivity and higher retention of staff.
We offer consultancy on developing a strategy including carbon measurement and reporting, energy strategies, waste and water management, staff engagement and all other environmental impacts.
All LSE quoted companies are required to report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their Directors’ Report, as set out in the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic Report and Directors’ Report) Regulations 2013.
The Regulations require all 6 Kyoto greenhouse gas emissions from fuel combustion, electricity, heat, steam etc for activities under the company’s global control and needs to be calculated using a recognised methodology. It also requires a ratio(s) to express the intensity of emissions, for example per floor space or sales.
We can also advise on meeting Carbon Reduction Commitment requirements, the Carbon Disclosure Project programme and voluntary monitoring and reporting of carbon emissions.
Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme
All organisations with over 250 employees, or a turnover in excess of 50m euro and an annual balance sheet total in excess of 43 million euro, are now required to have an energy audit in compliance with the requirements of the Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme.
This is part of the 2012 EU Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU) which targets 20% energy efficiency by 2020. Article 8 requires all member states to introduce a mandatory requirement for large enterprises to undertake energy audits every 4 years.
Lansdowne Warwick offer audits and services to enable organisations to comply with the requirements.
