LONDON, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
All savvy bosses know that reducing energy consumption around your workplace can make
a big difference to your business’s gas and electricity bills
But, with the best will in the world, it’s hard to do that if you don’t have your
entire workforce on board.
British Gas Business [http://www.britishgas.co.uk/business ] are on hand to help.
We’ve launched a series of five free, printable energy-saving posters
showing small, easy measures your staff can take to cut energy usage at work.
The posters, suitable for all businesses from health clubs to insurance companies,
gently remind staff of the difference they can make. Like the fact that simply switching
off unused lights at night or in empty rooms can cut lighting costs by 15%.
Or that getting your staff to turn off their computer every evening – rather than
leaving it in ‘sleep mode’ – could save the company GBP35 in a year.
The clear, easy-to-read posters cover five topics:
1) Turning off office equipment when it's not in use 2) Keeping heating at a constant level 3) Turning lights off in empty rooms 4) Turning the thermostat down by one degree 5) Only boiling the water you need in the kettle
Getting all staff to keep up these measures can not only help cut your bills but it
may help improve productivity too.

has shown that companies choosing to implement commercial energy-saving
initiatives have seen on average 16% growth in productivity.
As well as the new posters, British Gas Business offers further advice to companies
wanting to up their energy-saving game. From information on the most energy efficient
equipment for your workplace, to advising on the benefits of having a company ‘green
