2. Use energy efficient office lighting
Keeping the lights on in your business isn’t cheap. In fact, up to 40% of the energy your business uses could go on lighting your premises. So if you‘re smart about how you use lighting, you could make other savings here.
- Swap out your incandescent filament bulbs with modern LEDs, CFL or halogens. Despite the upfront cost of replacing them, they could save your business a lot of energy and often last longer.
- Ask your employees to turn off the lights when no one’s in the room (it may sound obvious but you’d be surprised how many people don’t think to).
Extra mile saving: Consider getting motion sensors in your corridors and toilets that only turn the lights on when they’re needed. Or use light sensors that help you make the most of free natural light.
