The final awards ceremony was held for SPI clients from North Ayrshire recently to reward them for their participation and hard work. Once again these businesses...
“Tartan Rocket has been under the expert guidance of Declan and Angela from the Crichton Carbon Centre. We implemented lots of small changes such as motion sensor LED lighting, trip curtains to help temperature control and waste recycling guidance. These changes have significantly reduced our running costs and have allowed our business to grow successfully whilst keeping financial and environmental costs to a minimum. It’s great to have the Crichton Carbon Centre on board helping us to promote our future friendly packaging as well”
“When I was first approached about SPI although I was keen to reduce my bills and carbon foot print I didn’t really want someone coming in poking about our business. Our Business Advisor Jayne was fantastic though, she was very unassuming and showed a real interest in the business. Joining SPI was definitely a good move”
“I found the SPI process easy to engage with; it was led by a knowledgeable consultant and covered everything from floor to ceiling. We have now completed our first action, installing LED lighting, a measure aided by a grant from West Dunbartonshire Council which was a big incentive in us getting involved in SPI. We are looking forward to seeing the reduction in our energy bills and this helping our bottom line, contributing to the continued success of our company and safeguarding the jobs we provide.”
“Our dedicated SPI business advisor took time to get to know my business. The baseline report and recommendations in the action plan he produced were straight forward and very practical. I am confident that once fully implemented we will achieve a reduction of our carbon output and a tangible improvement our operations whilst keeping a lid on costs”
“Our energy consumption and costs are definitely down since joining the SPI programme. But SPI has provided much more than that. Working with the staff and training them on resource efficiency has brought us together in a different way than general work stuff would. This has had a positive effect on the customers, who notice it as well as the resource efficiency measures we have adopted. They definitely appreciate being part of a business who are doing their bit”
“We found the SPI programme extremely comprehensive, unobtrusive and beneficial for business. We joined at the start of 2014 and have already seen a 20% reduction in our energy consumption. The programme has met and in many cases surpassed all our expectations”
