How can the Arts Council help with your electricity bills?

Regardless of how much attention you pay, in an organisation as multifarious as the Arts Council, every now and again you come across something and think ‘I either forgot or didn’t know we were doing that. But what a good project.’ Here’s today’s example...

The Arts Energy website gives access to a toolkit which will help organisations manage their energy use – cutting down on costs and reducing their carbon footprint. The benefits to both the business plan and the planet should be obvious. I know from examples in the North East what a difference a proactive approach to this can make to the bottom line and productivity. The toolkit consists of a number of modules to both assess current energy management practices and to develop a plan for improvement. It has been piloted and you can now register for it at www.artsenergy.org.uk.
