The DET at the heart of companies' energy efficiency policies


The Work Environment Department has become a key player for companies concerned about their environmental impact. Indeed, energy sobriety has become one of the main concerns in 2022, and the Work Environment Department plays a key role in the implementation of policies aimed at reducing energy consumption within the company. It must encourage employees to adopt more energy-efficient behaviors.

The role of the Work Environment Department

To achieve this objective, the Work Environment Department can implement various measures, such as optimizing the use of electrical and air-conditioning equipment, setting up energy monitoring procedures, or raising employees' awareness of the importance of energy conservation.

The implementation of these measures requires first of all a good understanding of the use of the building, but also a close coordination and collaboration between the TED and other departments of the company, especially the maintenance and energy management departments. The TED must also work closely with local authorities and regulatory agencies to ensure that the measures taken comply with applicable laws and regulations. It is also important to make employees aware of the importance of these measures and involve them in the process, so that they are motivated to implement them on a daily basis.

The company can also invest in more eco-friendly technologies, such as renewable energy or energy management systems, to reduce its consumption. However, this often requires a significant investment, which is often scary. That's why it's important to study these changes to ensure that the investment will pay off in the long run.

Some companies even tend to carbon neutral offices, which means a perfect balance between carbon emissions and absorptions.

Coordinate to optimize

It is crucial to closely monitor the effectiveness of the measures implemented and adjust them accordingly to achieve the environmental sustainability goals. This may involve regular assessments of the company's energy consumption, as well as meetings with the different departments to discuss progress and challenges, but also the continuity of the strategy and the optimizations it requires.

In short, the implementation of an energy efficiency policy within the company requires close collaboration and coordination between the different departments, as well as short and long term investments. However, in addition to reducing the company's costs, these measures can also contribute to the company's environmental sustainability, which is beneficial for the whole company.
