As well as cutting carbon emissions, reducing energy related costs is important to sustaining economic growth for Derbyshire businesses.
With increasing energy costs increasingly making up a large proportion of businesses expenditure, training staff in behavioural change and even investing in energy efficient technologies can be highly cost effective.
Adapting to climate change can make commercial sense too. Recent Environment Agency data suggests that for every £1 spent on adapting to climate change £4 can be saved.
Derbyshire County Council and our partners run a number of schemes that can help businesses reduce emissions and build resilience to climate change.
