Business owners have fallen in love with the advances in lighting technology, and it's not hard to see why. They are increasingly embracing energy efficiency as a way to improve their bottom line. Reducing their energy and operational costs not only helps them monetarily, but they have an added side benefit of reducing their carbon footprint. This is a great promotional tool to use, just ask your PR and marketing friends,
Recently, Deloitte (a major financial consulting firm) published a study on these exact findings. The goal of the report was to provide insights that can be useful in helping businesses make energy related investment and business decisions. The numbers themselves shed new light onto how many companies see lighting as a way for them to compete in the marketplace. Of the sampled businesses, 79% view reducing electricity costs as critical to maintaining a competitive advantage over their competitors. Additionally, cost cutting was cited as a motivation for 59% of respondents, and more than 55% of businesses now generate energy on-site.
Like many other aspects of business, these upgrades are now a necessity. In the 2015 study, Deloitte saw a significant increase in the formation of the corporate energy vision, and a larger emphasis on an energy management strategy. More than half of the businesses sampled stated that they have an energy plan in place, many others are working on putting one together.
