Berendsen plc, is a FTSE-250 company and a leading commercial laundry service provider in Europe. They spend £30m per year on power and gas across Europe and have utilised Beond (formerly known as BuyENERGYonline) for the last ten years to support their energy procurement and risk management requirements in the UK.
Since 2008, Berendsen’s UK sites have reduced energy consumption (kWh) by 17% and water usage by 37%, equating to over 1 billion litres of water saved per year and recently they won the Green Impact Award at the first ever Laundry and Dry Cleaning Awards (The LADAs) in the UK.
Berendsen like other businesses in the UK face strongly rising electricity prices as the cost of lowcarbon energy is passed through to customers. We estimate these taxes have risen by £1m per annum in just three years, from £2m in 2013 to £3m in 2016.
The risk management strategy objectives included:
“Berendsen have worked with Beond’s energy consultants for over 10 years. They help our different divisions to buy
collaboratively in the wholesale market by estimating our energy risk and making specific recommendations. Our sites are large energy users and they need a trusted consultant to help them manage their costs and be available to solve complex problems if they arise.”
