With Phase 2 of the Government’s Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) on the horizon, Manufacture 2030 has joined forces with JRP Solutions and William Jackson Food Group to bring you a webinar on 31st January 2018 which will explore the challenges encountered during Phase 1, unpick common misconceptions and outline goals.

Why attend?

ESOS Phase 1 was met with mixed feelings, with many companies struggling to meet deadlines and advance the energy saving opportunities identified.

With the qualification date for Phase 2 on 31st December 2018 and the four-year compliance deadline on 5th December 2019, we thought we’d make life easier for you and kick-start your ESOS efforts! The webinar is free to join and you can book your spot today.

During this session, our experts will:

  • discuss underlying misconceptions around the scheme;
  • share their findings from Phase 1 – what worked well and what didn’t;
  • review different routes to compliance, and
  • determine how companies can maximise the benefits of the process.

The Manufacture 2030 team will also introduce you to M2030 bee, our unique online service that can simplify your ESOS actions by making it easy to improve resource efficiency across your manufacturing operations.

We can help you to spend less time and make more progress!
