Make Buildings Better Competition
Introduce a new incentive scheme aimed at reducing a companies emissions. Incentives may be monetary or through some form of grant - which an agreed percentage of it must be reinvested in renewable energy within the company. Companies are given various targets for reducing emissions based on size and profession that must be achieved in order to qualify. Once each target is proven as achieved a new target will be set. To further encourage participation, different levels of award could be issued - allowing the company to promote itself as an environmentally conscious company, something that can give the edge to a company when competing for work. Through achieving these performance targets and using a percentage of the money/ grant towards furthering their renewable energies, this scheme could help make buildings better.
