Derwent fm has signed up to The Climate Group’s business initiative on efficient energy (EP100), which brings together a growing group of energy-smart companies committed to improving their energy productivity and doing more with less.
The organisation is joining the EP100 project through the energy management pathway and has committed to reduce its energy consumption by 40 per cent through its energy management system by 2050. This is based on its 2019/20 baseline year.
Derwent fm is one of the first facilities management companies to sign up to EP100.
Janice Boucher, Managing Director, Derwent Facilities Management, said: “Following our recent implementation of an energy management system and accreditation to ISO 50001, we wish to join other energy smart companies with a commitment to accelerate climate change. We are passionate about exploring energy efficient technologies and driving cultural change to reduce emissions, costs and combat climate change.”
Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Derwent fm to EP100. Buildings account for approximately 40 per cent of global energy demand, mainly in commerce and retail. To keep global warming below 1.5˚C, building energy renovation rates need to be double the current rate, increasing to three per cent per year. The facilities management industry therefore has a crucial role to play in reducing emissions and tackling climate change, so we applaud Derwent fm on showing leadership in their field.”
