we specialise in helping organisations transition to a low carbon economy

At long last climate change has been recognised as a critical global issue

All the UK Governments, and an increasing number of local authorities, have declared a climate emergency and adopted ambitious carbon reduction targets, as have a growing number of high-profile businesses. Whoever you work for, your stakeholders, shareholders, managers, employees, customers, funders and your family and friends will expect you to take action to help your organisation reduce its carbon impact. Organisations are quickly realising that in order to succeed in a low carbon economy, they have to take action now in order to adapt.

The UK was at the forefront of the global industrial revolution and Wales provided the coal and iron to fuel its growth. Egnida (good energy in Welsh) was born in Wales and conceived with the intent of helping organisations in Wales, and across the UK, to lead the global transformation to a low carbon economy. The Egnida Group has specialist skills in energy, innovative smart systems and mobility, which are the necessary components of a successful shift to a low carbon future. We help private and public sector organisations to survive and thrive during this inevitable and imminent transition.

Our skills, experience and successful track record of independent advice and solution delivery make us your ideal, trusted partner to deliver your ambitions and legacy. Having worked with a wide range of organisations in the UK for over a decade, we know that decarbonisation is easy to agree but difficult to deliver. Traditional approaches are both slow and expensive and budgets are hard to come by. Even day to day activities like choosing a fleet of replacement diesel cars and vans, which once made you look green, now seem like a poor choice that contributes to global warming and local air pollution. Our proven but innovative approaches, contained within our “climate emergency survival kit”, give our customers a risk managed way forward that delivers value at all stages and is often self-funding.

CASE STUDY

Egnida has been working strategically for over a decade with a very wide range of customers across both the public and private sectors. These customers include local authorities, NHS Trusts, charities, social housing providers, universities, global manufacturers, regulated utilities, retailers, logistics companies and service companies to name just a few.

Merthyr Tydfil

Merthyr Tydfil Council is a relatively small local authority in a deprived area of Wales that had a wish to take action early to benefit from the transition to a low carbon economy. This intent was further reinforced through their legislative obligations under the Welsh Government’s Future Generations Act. Merthyr Tydfil Council have always been keen to reduce their carbon impacts but their ambitions were restricted due to a lack of internal resources, funding and scale. They chose to work with Egnida because of our proven risk managed approach and ability to deliver results under challenging circumstances.

Our climate emergency survival guide

Save time, save money, save the planet.

STEP 1

Asses your current situation

Without knowing where you are now, you can’t make or track progress towards your goals.

Measure and state your current carbon baseline. Identify the key areas to target.
Determine your climate emergency targets and their scope.
Agree who is going to be responsible for what and who is the senior owner.
Put in place the tools necessary to monitor and measure progress.

STEP 2

Talk to people

Meeting climate emergency targets is not something, which can be done alone. Everyone needs to be engaged and contributing to keeping the planet inhabitable.

Create a communication and engagement plan, which will reach all stakeholders in the most appropriate way.
Devise a suitable carbon metric for use in communications, internally and externally.
Leverage your channels of influence such as procurement, planning and internal governance to influence and change behaviour.
Find suitable partners with which to collaborate to help maximise influence and benefits of delivering climate emergency targets.

STEP 3

Take Action

There is no time to lose when it comes to a climate emergency. The time for talking is over and actions need to follow words.

As a priority, identify opportunities to eliminate energy and use it more efficiently.
Assess renewable energy potential across your own assets and area of influence.
Once identified, find ways of delivering the activities by creating a business case to justify the necessary budget.
Develop and implement a low carbon and clean transport plan.

STEP 4

Move Forward

Once the first steps are taken, it’s important not to assume that the next steps will follow. Regular attention and action will be required to achieve a low carbon future.

Source a renewable energy supply for residual energy needs.
Enable you to measure and analyse progress with an online dashboard.
Investigate carbon offset possibilities.
