Is your organisation making New Year resolutions to improve
energy efficiency and sustainability during 2015? Recent work
by the Carbon Trust suggests many companies are focusing their
efforts or expressing new ambitions for the coming year.
The Trust's Director for Business Advice, Hugh Jones,
has picked out five trends that are expected to rise up the corporate
sustainability agenda during 2015 - updating targets, supply
chain engagement, improved water management, exploring business
model innovation and greening consumer behaviour.
"Our team of expert consultants work across a wide range
of sectors, supporting businesses in reducing their environmental
impact, using resources more efficiently and taking advantage
of the opportunities arising in a sustainable, low carbon economy," says
