Simon Nicholls, Olympus Power’s MD and Group MD of the Devon Power group of companies, is keen to turn Devon green, without hitting the bottom line.  As we now are all too aware, we need to do our bit to save the planet, however, this needs not to cost the earth; far from it.

The business benefits of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives range from reducing your business costs to improving staff engagement levels and encouraging positive PR. Even so, some companies worry about the time and effort involved with implementing CSR programs. Alternatively, your business may be concerned that your CSR results aren’t as good as you were expecting. Whichever the case, quick wins for CSR are possible renewable energy is one of them.

CSR: a quick win

Switching to renewable electricity whether from solar PV installed at the site or from grid power generated from a renewable source can bring you impressive and speedy returns. Sourced from generation such as biomass, solar, or wind, our renewable power can drastically decrease your CO2 output. Sustainably sourced electricity produces on average 75% fewer carbon emissions than coal and this figure includes all the emissions from production, transportation, and manufacturing.

100% Renewable Power

We’re able to supply 100% renewable power – and we’re hearing about the positive results. For example, the renewable solar PV electricity we installed at Riverford Organic Farm is an important part of how it continues to deliver an organic and sustainable supply chain. This industry recognition, fuelled by renewable power, helps the family-run farm to attract ethical customers and creating new PR opportunities.

Get in touch with us or pop down to our new Sustainability Hub on Marsh Barton to let us show you that you can have renewable energy at no additional cost and can smash those CSR targets into the bargain.
