Switching to LED lighting could save your business up to 70% of your energy costs and create a safer, more productive working environment for you and your staff.
Not only could you generate savings of thousands of pounds, but LED lighting can improve sleep, enhance mood, boost concentration levels and eliminate dangerous, darkened areas where accidents might happen.
We live in a world where many customers and employees care about energy-efficiency and sustainability. Therefore, adopting good practices when it comes to being ‘green’ could result in greater trust with your clients and stakeholders as well as enhancing a company’s reputation.
Energy-efficient, LED lighting is an ideal place to start.
Working in partnership with Green Tree Energy Savings Solutions, your journey towards a healthier, safer and greener environment couldn’t be easier.
Benefits for employers and employees
No one knows the premises or understands the needs of your staff as well as you do.
However, as well as huge financial savings, leading the way to adopting sustainable and energy-saving practices within your business has other benefits:
1. Access to government funding
Financial support is available to both the public and private sector to help reduce carbon emissions. Interest free loans, grants and tax breaks have been introduced to encourage a reduction in carbon emissions.
2. Safer working environments
With improved light direction, working surfaces are better illuminated. Darkened or poorly lit areas are eliminated meaning workspaces with uneven surfaces or steps, are likely to be much safer.
3. Increased productivity
LED lighting is shown to increase productivity and concentration compared to the fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs currently used in many offices.
4. Better sleep
The full spectrum light of LEDs, only otherwise provided by sunlight, triggers a hormonal response, helping the body produce the melatonin and dopamine during the evening hours that help us sleep. This means employees are likely to be more alert and keep our minds happy and healthy.
5. Healthier employees and fewer sick days.
Some individuals can have a sensitivity to fluorescent light which can lead to eye strain and could even mean they experience headaches and nausea caused by the spikes in the light output. This could prevent them working effectively or even cause them to take sick days.
6. Reduced maintenance
LED lights have a much longer life span, reducing the need for replacements throughout the year and less disruption to the working day.
