Business Climate Challenge
Heart of London Business Alliance is partnering with the Greater London Authority to deliver the 2022 Mayor’s Business Climate Challenge (BCC). The BCC is a voluntary energy efficiency programme developed to support businesses in reducing their energy consumption, costs and carbon emissions. Participating businesses receive free customised technical advice to member organisations to help make their workplaces more energy efficient. This is a unique opportunity for Heart of London Business Alliance members to start to future-proof their businesses against rising energy prices and help London become net zero by 2030. Findings from the pilot indicate that in the first 9 months of the programme BCC participants reduced their energy consumption on average by 16%, surpassing their target, and saving £8,300 in energy costs.
How does it work?
Heart of London Business Alliance will work with the GLA to recruit businesses and engage with them throughout the duration of the Challenge. Participants pledge to reduce their energy consumption by 10% in the programme year and to help them do this they receive a package of bespoke technical support from an energy consulting firm. The package includes a workplace audit and Display Energy Certificate (DEC), a recommendation report with energy efficiency measures to reduce energy consumption, a roadmap to net zero as well as individual one-to-one support and group training sessions. Participating businesses that take action will be promoted throughout the Challenge and those who reach the 10% target will be recognised in a Mayoral event at the end of the programme.
