Supporting Climate Action on World Environment Day

Derwent fm is one of the first FM providers in the UK to join The Climate Group’s EP100 energy management pathway, committing it to improving its energy productivity by 40 per cent.

The Climate Group’s mission is to inspire and convince leaders in government, business and society to reduce carbon emissions now and accelerate the transition to a net zero emissions economy. A member of the We Mean Business coalition, it has offices in London, New Delhi and New York.

Members of the group’s EP100 pathway requires a commitment by organisations to reducing energy consumption by 2050.

Explaining the move, Janice Boucher, Derwent fm managing director, says: “Following our recent implementation of an energy management system and accreditation to ISO 50001, we wish to join other energy smart companies with a commitment to accelerate climate change.

“We are passionate about exploring energy efficient technologies and driving cultural change to reduce emissions, costs and combat climate change.”

Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group, adds: “We’re pleased to welcome Derwent fm to EP100. Buildings account for approximately 40 per cent of global energy demand, mainly in commerce and retail.

“To keep global warming below 1.5˚ Centigrade, building energy renovation rates need to be double the current rate, increasing to 3 per cent per year.

“The Facilities Management industry therefore has a crucial role to play in reducing emissions and tackling climate change, so we applaud Derwent fm on showing leadership in their field.”
