HOW WOULD
YOU FEEL IF
YOU RECEIVED
40 PERCENT LESS
OF EVERYTHING
YOU PAID FOR?

Many businesses
needlessly waste up to
40 percent of the
energy used in their
operations.

IS YOUR
COMPANY
AN ENERGY
WASTER?

Answer a few
questions to see if
you’re on track to
energy efficiency.

Question 1

What level of importance does
your organization place on
improving energy efficiency?

Energy use is impossible to get away
from, in any industry; it is, and always will
be, necessary. Reducing energy use
through energy management can result in
reduced operating costs and improve your
business’ bottom line. Such management
is only as effective as a company’s
willingness to implement it.

Question 2

My organization’s energy
efficiency goals are:

Setting a goal for energy efficiency is
beneficial in several ways. Naturally, it
gives your organization something to
strive for, but it also allows for the
implementation of a plan, and
accountability to determine if the goal is
being met. Every good plan must start
with a goal!

Question 3

Employees in my
organization are:

Change can be very difficult, especially
with respect to everyday policies. Energy
management is something that needs
support from all employees on an ongoing
basis if it is to be successful. Education
and awareness can go a long way to
acquiring such support, and the benefits
of full support can be tremendous.

Question 4

Who’s championing your
energy efficiency strategies?

Commitment from all levels of business
operations is necessary to ensure proper
implementation and success of an energy
efficiency strategy. At a minimum the
commitment needs to start from the top
down. Constant communication between
all levels will also ensure better
understanding of the goals for energy use.
Teamwork is essential.

Question 5

How important is energy
efficiency to your company’s
competitiveness?

Profit, in its simplest form, is total revenue
less total costs. It is also the absolute goal
of every business owner to maximize profit.
The long-term reduction of operating costs
increases long-term profits.
