The partnership set the foundations to look at the our energy management and gain better access to accurate energy data.

New measures have been put in place, such as automated meter reading devices, that have allowed regular meter reads and more accurate billing.

We've set a target to achieve net zero on our direct business emissions by 2035 and reach net zero emissions by 2050.

Head of environmental sustainability Samantha Granger said: “We’re working with Inenco to help us better manage our energy usage and reduce our carbon emissions, as we work towards becoming net zero.

“We’ve got access to knowledge, insight and analysis of our energy usage and we’re making real changes.

“We’ve worked together to complete energy audits, within our buildings which have the highest energy usage and 90% of our different property types.

“The results from the audits have helped us to identify potential further savings of over 950,000kWh which equates to more than 200 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

“Having better data is allowing us to focus our investment in net zero technology in the right places, where we know it will make a difference. That’s why we’ve made plans to install additional photovoltaic (PV) panels on our office building and we’re continuing to identify more opportunities like this to drive down our direct carbon emissions even further.”

Inenco’s associate director of customer experience Glyn Whelan added: “We are delighted to be in partnership with an organisation as engaged and ambitious as Thirteen. It’s great to see that the strategy is already delivering against their net zero aspirations. We look forward to continuing to help deliver a sustainable future through our collective expertise, insight and innovation.”
