Video: What to look for on a Site Audit – Behavioural Change
Behavioural change is a huge part of creating a positive transformation in your business’s energy consumption patterns, and it’s a relatively low/no-cost way of doing so. When looking at behavioural change, to begin with, auditors will focus on a few key areas, most notably:
- Technology – are energy-saving modes being used?
- The pre-existing energy-saving mindset in the business
- Correctly set thermostats
- Windows and doors being closed at the right times
- Are staff willing to engage?
Stressing a common goal across the business committed to saving energy makes energy efficiency easier as inaction can lead to more energy waste, which in turn means having to report a larger carbon footprint.
To ensure this doesn’t happen, auditors will employ a strategy that encourages workers to change their energy habits through education, and set up green teams and other resources that put a focus on energy efficiency.
