With barely half of qualifying companies meeting the extended ESOS compliance deadline, it's clear the scheme has had a tough time gaining traction with UK plc. But what's next for those that did meet the requirements and the deadline?
With no obligation to implement any efficiency measures following the first ESOS audit, is this another 'toothless' compliance scheme which will fail to deliver concrete benefits for qualifying businesses? Or, with the assessment done, does ESOS pave the way for meaningful, measurable energy savings at scale?
One month on from the extended deadline, this edie webinar explores exactly these questions, with expert advice about how ESOS could be the key to securing crucial board-level buy-in for UK energy managers and unlocking massive savings.
Together, we will investigate the ëOpportunityí in ESOS, and how to ensure that opportunity is realised, turning compliance into business benefit. Specifically, this webinar will provide an insight into energy managers' experience of the compliance process, and how they are using the findings to engage with employees, get buy-in from the board and drive real change in their organisations.
