ESOS – how compliance can be your business weapon
ESOS is the UK government’s mandatory energy saving initiative, introduced in response to the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive. Companies affected must comply with ESOS phase 2 by 5th December, or face fines.
We believe ESOS shouldn’t be seen as a regulatory hurdle. In fact it’s an opportunity for your organisation to improve and gain business advantages such as improved performance, cost savings, or aligning your estates closer to your broader organisational objectives.
Mike Kenny is an accredited ESOS lead assessor. Watch his 30 second introduction to ESOS phase 2..

My board doesn’t value or understand why my FM initiative is so important for the business! How do I convince them?”
How can I be 100% sure we’re getting value for money from my in house, or 3rd party FM team?
How do I deliver my workplace refurbishment or construction projects on time, to budget and as required?
How do I fulfil statutory and technical compliance for our buildings and estate without taking up so much of my team’s time?
How do we reduce our utilities bill and carbon emissions?”
This technical problem is giving me a headache – how do I solve it?
How can I make everyone happy with office conditions? Some complain that it’s too hot, others complain it’s too cold!
