Driving Reduction of Utility Costs

Client Name: Stagecoach
Working towards delivering on its Environmental Impact Reduction programme as part of its Sustainability Strategy, Stagecoach UK Bus asked for Inenco's help to identify excess waste from their water consumption and conduct a full consumption and charging audit review.

The Challenge

Stagecoach UK Bus has used the Inenco comprehensive bureau service for a number of years and as part of the collaborative relationship, the company discussed and then requested Inenco to conduct a full audit of their water supplies. Stagecoach’s environmental objective was to try to reduce their water consumption and validate any areas where there might be water wastage. Alongside this Stagecoach wanted to look at historical invoicing to potentially gain back any incorrectly charged costs from suppliers.

 

Our Approach

01
Analysis

A fully comprehensive water analysis took place, undertaking charging tariff amendments, resolving charging errors and investigating excess consumption potential

02
Bench Marking

Inenco looked at an efficiency ratio bench marking analysis to identify those depots potentially wasting water

03
Survey

From here Inenco implemented a programme of efficiency and leakage surveys to rectify the concerns

04
Implementation

The strategies in which Inenco carried out ensured that Stagecoach were being invoiced correctly by their suppliers and assisted with reducing their high consumption

 

The Results

Reduction measures have already been implemented and Inenco are continuing to work on solutions for sites with excess consumption identified during the surveys, which has the potential for additional savings for Stagecoach.

However, savings to date on their water costs, included a revenue recovery in excess of £100K, an approx 11% annual saving of total spend, and refunds recovered in excess of £100K. Including annual savings of £70K and rebates over £40K currently identified in the implementation process.
