Leading edge energy & carbon management
The Energy and Environment Team are responsible for all aspects of the Group’s energy requirements as well as investigating and implementing technologies and programmes to help meet our environmental priorities. How we do this is highlighted through our team’s objectives:
The Energy and Environment Team currently buys over 1.1 TWh of electricity and 400 GWh of gas to supply the 6000 plus sites that the Co-operative Group occupies or owns. There are three major utility contracts for the Group: half hourly electricity, non half hourly electricity and gas. A full risk management policy is adhered to and the contracts are all fully flexible.
If you are interested in finding out more information on energy procurement at the Co-operative Group, please contact our Energy Procurement Manager on 0161 827 6122.
The Co-operative believes that reducing energy consumption will lead to a brighter future. We have set ourselves a tough target to reduce energy consumption across our business by 25% by 2012. We have hit the half way point and have so far saved over 12.5% against a 2006 base.
There is still a long way to go to ensure we achieve the target… if you are interested in finding out more about the Programme or believe you have a product or service we should consider, please contact our Energy Efficiency Manager on 0161 827 6496.
The Energy and Environment Team are responsible for delivering the targets set on a number of key environmental priorities… including waste reduction and water conservation.
