BEE Anglia On Helping Businesses Achieve Carbon Charter Status

Almost a year ago BEE Anglia undertook an audit for Box-It East to evaluate their energy efficiency and the proposed changes have since enabled Box-It East to earn Sliver Level Carbon Charter status. Here’s how:

Focused on hard copy storage, confidential document destruction, as well as state-of-the-art scanning and environmentally-friendly recycling, Box-it East provides a service to match the demands of every business local to the area.

A BEE Anglia audit led to the suggested measure of upgrading the current T8 type fluorescent tube lighting to their LED equivalents has been estimated to have significant savings of 13,910Wh/year for Box-it East (£1,682 and 8.0tCO2e).

It was recommended that Box-it East consider installing a 46.9kWp solar PV system to suitable roof space. This was calculated to generate 44,906kWh annually, equating to around 50% of the site’s total estimated annual consumption.

Since receiving the BEE Anglia report Box-it East have been awarded a Silver Level Carbon Charter. This recognises their carbon reduction measures and helps the business to stand out.

Claire Brooks, Owner of Box-it East Ltd, explains: “From the support and advice received from BEE Anglia we now have a clearer environmental policy, recycling policy and ‘switch off the lights’ policy! Box-it East have now been awarded Silver Carbon Charter status, and anyone that knows us will also know that Silver isn’t good enough and we will be going for gold!”
