Carbon Trust body claims carbon cuts as top investment for business

Carbon Trust Advisory Services has released a paper on how large UK
businesses underestimate the financial payback from energy efficiency
measures by as much as £1.6bn.

The body's analysis of companies it currently works with suggests that
businesses can expect bills to be cut by up to 15% by implementing energy
efficiency measures.

The Business of Energy Efficiency paper also found that investments in
energy efficiency are paid back within three years and have an average
initial rate of return of 48%, well beyond the 11.5% many businesses mandate
as a minimum requirement.

However, it found many businesses don't implement all the efficiency
projects they have at their disposal and miss out a possible £1.6bn each
year in cost savings.
