The Green Positive Environmental Action (PEA) scheme helps businesses save money by becoming more energy efficient. It also contributes towards reducing carbon emissions in local areas. It is a FREE voluntary business certification initiative, designed to encourage organisations to understand and review energy costs, and then undertake activities in line with expert recommendations to reduce them.
Companies undergo a survey on their energy usage to provide a benchmark. This analysis will also include recommendations for improvements. Organisations can then work through a number of levels within the scheme achieving milestones and accreditations. Help and support is available from your Local Authority who manage the scheme, and many associated experts in the field of green energy conservation.
P1 Foundation – Companies receive an energy usage survey with recommendations and milestones. A letter of support from the senior management team is expected, target timescale: 3-4 months
P2 Improved – Companies asked to achieve at least 2 recommendations from benchmark study, target timescale: 6 months (depending upon type of business)
P3 Advanced – to achieve at least 5 recommendations or demonstrate qualified level of staff engagement, target timescale: 9 months
P4 Distinguished – to demonstrate 10% saving in direct carbon emissions, target timescale: 12-18 months

“We were introduced to Green PEA a few months ago, and we have already made some significant steps forward with our green technologies. We fully accept that manufacturing composites is inherently not the most environmentally-friendly activity, so anything we can do to offset this is very welcome. The Green PEA delivery partners we have used have been very helpful and we are very keen to continue supporting the scheme in the future”
