Missed the deadline for ESOS compliance? You're not alone!

There are approximately 1,500 companies who submitted their ESOS return at the end of November - a long way short of the 13-15,000 companies who are likely to be affected.

An extended deadline has been agreed by the Environment Agency (click here for more details) that will allow many more companies to become ESOS compliant.

Revised submission deadline

Allowances were published by the EA for companies who meet the thresholds to declare their intent to comply by 5 December, with a final submission deadline of the ESOS report required by 29 January 2016.

Fortunately, ecosurety can help make this process as straightforward, painless and as beneficial to your company as possible, by matching you with one of our specialised Lead Assessors.

We firmly believe in the spirit of the ESOS regulations, which is to highlight energy saving opportunities within your operations that, if implemented, will save both carbon and money.

Industry specific assessors

Importantly we can access a pool of lead assessors, enabling us to select one that is the best fit for your business. Generally this means an assessor with a background in your specific industry, so they know exactly what they’re looking for when identifying areas for energy savings.

Our role is to agree the compliance action plan between you and the assessor, helping out with reporting and analysis where necessary to ensure you gain the most benefit.

Also, we act as an independent third party. Our lead assessors are not our partners, which means we can always act in your best interests and get quotes from numerous sources. Assessors offer different levels of service too, and we can add more or less support where required.

Act now to meet the extended deadline

To meet the extended deadline, simply complete our quick ESOS questionnaire. This will enable us to get indicative pricing back from assessors for you as quickly as possible. If you would like to know more you can of course contact our team of specialists for a chat.
