As Earth Day approaches in a few weeks (22 April 2024), it's a timely opportunity for businesses to reflect on their impact on the planet and take actions towards sustainability.

This year, EARTHDAY.ORG has chosen the theme "Planet vs. Plastics," underscoring the need to address plastic pollution for the health of our planet and all its inhabitants. The organisation's commitment to ending plastic pollution is bold and clear, with a call for a 60% reduction in the production of all plastics by 2040, an end to fast fashion, and a push for strong international policies against plastic pollution. Big aims that bring significant opportunities.

At EP&T Global, we are strengthening our efforts to support businesses in identifying and rectifying energy inefficiencies within their operations and buildings. Our mission aligns closely with Earth Day's theme by focusing on reducing carbon emissions, reducing pollution and protecting the planet. As the commercial real estate sector significantly contributes to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, accounting for almost 40% of emissions, EP&T's role becomes even more critical.

With the commercial real estate sector being a significant emitter of GHGs, companies within this industry must adopt strategies that reduce their carbon footprint. Forbes highlights the urgency of this issue, pointing out that decarbonising is the crucial step towards achieving global environmental goals.

Our team understand the significance of this challenge and are committed to providing our clients with the tools and insights needed to optimise their building performance and operations. Our technology and services are designed to identify inefficiencies and reduce energy demand, lowering carbon emissions and supporting the broader goal of protecting the earth's natural resources for future generations.

EP&T's dedication to environmental efficiency goes beyond the operational aspects of the buildings we work with. By helping our clients fine-tune their operations, we significantly reduce energy demand, reduce the reliance on non-renewable energy sources and minimise the overall environmental impact. Our comprehensive approach addresses the day-to-day energy demands of commercial real estate operations and paves the way for a more sustainable future.

By focusing on reducing energy inefficiencies and embracing sustainable practices, we can collectively contribute to a healthier, plastic-free planet. Let's make every day Earth Day.
