    A series of plays to ensure you earn more, and have more free time...

    As a business we were duty bound to talk about sustainability and in my role heading up the third-party sales channels, we talked to customers and third parties about the importance of becoming more efficient, as this would protect our depleting resources and have a knock-on impact on business/consumer energy use.

    The less we use the less we need to heat, thus reducing our environmental impact whilst saving money,  a win win I thought.

    As a proud Yorkshireman who’s always counted my pennies, this got me thinking, what else can we be doing at home to become more sustainable and save money?

    We insulated our house, installed a water butt, installed triple glazing and a new heating system over a few years, making our house much more efficient and cost effective to run.

    Whilst making all these changes at home, we continued to talk to our third-party channel about the need to become more sustainable and efficient, taking our conversation away from sales and price.

    It quickly became apparent there was not much appetite for this. They wanted the cheapest price for their customers and the most commission for themselves, to fire and forget about the contract and not encourage efficiency as this would, in their view, hit their bottom line (less commission).

    So I took responsibility in the only way I knew how - by tying sustainability into everything I do.

    In this playbook I am instilling my many years of experience in the utilities industry into a series of easy plays to help your business become aligned to the United Nations Climate Change Race to Zero campaign.

    James Staniforth is the founder of Sustainable Business Services and is a very successful, tenacious business leader who is focused on helping us, our clients and our partners achieve sustainable growth whilst tackling our climate emergency.
