Description

Are you pouring money down the drain?

Water management is often overlooked by the drive to reduce energy bills when saving water can save £thousands a year, sometimes with very short payback periods, and it reduces carbon emissions, too.

We will discuss conducting water audits and also

  • The benefits of having robust water management plans

  • Government schemes that give you 100% tax relief for using the correct equipment

  • Private water supply management and staying on good terms with the authorities

  • Avoiding 6 and 7 figure fines by controlling Legionella risks, you’d be amazed how many businesses are dicing with death!

The session will be led by Ian Hughes of Oakstone Environmental Consulting.

Starting his professional life in the Royal Navy, Ian later worked in corporate Safety and Environment for Centrica (offshore gas) before going self employed in 2000. He undertook a 4 year full time Master's degree in Natural Sciences as a mature student graduating from Lancaster University in 2017. Since then he has completed diplomas in Environmental Management, Water Conservation and Management and Legionella Risk Management working as a freelance consultant in his own business Oakstone Environmental Consulting Ltd. Although specialising in water management predominantly, Ian also undertakes all aspects of environmental sustainability work.

The event will start at 12:00 with lunch and networking, with the session starting from 12:30. Following the session there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and for further networking over refreshments.

The Chamber Low Carbon team will be on hand to discuss the support and funding available through the Low Carbon programme.

This workshop is part of a regular Lunch & Learn series giving Lancashire businesses the knowledge and tools to go green. To keep up-to-date with further workshops subscribe to the Chamber Low Carbon newsletter.
