Together with our partners, we help our clients reinvent their businesses at scale, creating business value and sustainable impact for all stakeholders.
Energy efficiency represents the biggest short-term opportunity for businesses and individuals to cope with the mounting energy cost pressures triggered by current economic and geopolitical forces while helping to create a more sustainable, affordable, reliable, and secure energy future for all.
Advancements in technologies, such as data and analytics, can deliver significant cost savings in ways that weren’t possible a decade ago, making energy efficiency one of the fastest and most cost-effective actions to reduce energy costs while advancing progress towards global climate targets.
Every business leader can take action today to reduce the amount of energy their organization consumes and also influence behavior change in individuals. And although there are a number of areas where efficiency improvements can be made, quick wins can be achieved by focusing on where the greatest short-term potential lies, for example, in buildings, transport, or industrial processes.
Take these four actions to cut your organization’s energy demand and deliver impact quickly. Accenture’s Andy Wales discusses the benefits.
