The pressure to remain competitive in an increasingly complex marketplace has always been a challenge for the industrial sector, not least in uncertain political times. Businesses face ever-increasing demand to fulfil the requirements of mandatory schemes, international standards, and changing government legislation. This includes carbon reduction (CCL, CCA, and CSR) and energy efficiency (ESOS, ISO 50001). Businesses in the industrial sector must ensure cost-effective energy procurement, whilst trying to take advantage of new opportunities such as the deregulation of the water market.

These issues can have a substantial impact on bottom line profitability, and addressing them is often a significant time commitment. This is where the Briar Associates team can add significant value to your business.

We have been providing independent, reliable and comprehensive low carbon consultancy services to industry for the last 25 years. Our successes in delivering a broad range of solutions across energy procurement, carbon legislation, energy/water audits, and M&E design have enabled our clients to remain competitive and cost effective for many years.

Operating in many industrial sectors, we have the expertise to deliver substantial value that will enable your business to control costs, remain compliant, and deliver improved environmental benefits.
