Prove your energy reductions and win with BSI's Energy Kitemark® Services…
For some organisations, simply measuring and managing your energy consumption is not enough - you may be required to prove your reductions in CO2 emissions resulting from energy use. BSI's new Kitemark Energy Reduction Verification (ERV) scheme has been developed to offer both large and small organisations with a way to verify and certify the reduction in CO2 emissions resulting from energy use. The scheme also presents clear and independent information on your energy usage to stakeholders, investors, specifiers, consumers and regulators
Importantly, for organisations that are required to participate in the Government's Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) - the UK's mandatory climate change and energy saving scheme – this Kitemark ERV scheme has been approved by the Environment Agency as an Early Action Metric under the CRC scheme. Certification to this scheme means that you can verify the energy savings you make, improve your position on the CRC Performance League Table, and protect your organisation's reputation.
Consumers do not trust environmental claims unless they have been independently verified – but they do trust the BSI Kitemark. Research conducted by Consumer Focus showed that 58% of consumers think that a lot of companies pretend to be green just to charge higher prices. Independent verification with BSI Kitemark can gain you credit with customers for taking action on the environment.
