BT Offers Free Online Tool To Help Small Business Cut Energy Use

by | Oct 22, 2008

BT Business launched the BT Business Environmental Self-assessment Tool, an online tool to help small businesses reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint.

The tool is free for businesses with up to 250 employees. It helps small businesses to identify some of their key environmental impacts and learn how they can make practical changes to improve their energy efficiency and green credentials. The Web tool also takes into account how work patterns, such as travel and IT use; business operations; and company policies influence a firm’s carbon footprint.

Bill Murphy, BT Business’ managing director, says the new online tool, “levels the playing field for smaller businesses that may not be aware of how sustainable business practices in many cases carry financial benefits too.”

Last year, the company formed a sustainability practice in the UK and US aimed at large corporates and public sector organizations.

In 2007, the company reported that it has reduced its carbon footprint by 97,000 tons of CO2 per year by using phone conferences and videoconferencing to cut back on staff travel for meetings.
