UK firms failing to take green savings seriously

Sunday 29 January 2012 01:00

Almost a third of managers charged with improving the energy efficiency of UK companies claim their bosses don't take the issue seriously, says a report by Siemens.

The survey of 600 UK businesses also showed more than a quarter of directors didn't even know how much their companies spend on energy. Juergen Maier, MD for the Siemens Industry Sector in the UK and Ireland, said the results "give cause for concern". He added: "Many businesses are neglecting the impact that effective energy management can have on the bottom line."
