Delivering Carbon Management Solutions to Reduce your Emissions and Costs

We help organisations reduce their carbon emissions whilst also reducing their costs. In the current challenging economic climate, organisations are battling with the desire to drive growth and profitability, whilst investing in low carbon emitting technologies to reduce their carbon footprint and speed up their journey to achieving Net Zero.

Auditel are The Cost, Procurement & Carbon Solutions Company who help organisations to help reduce their carbon emissions and costs at the same time. We help our clients on their journey towards Net Zero by simplifying the process. We begin with a couple of easy steps, which could lead you to be verified as Carbon Neutral within 12 months, to an internationally recognised standard. Using our procurement expertise, we make sure any actions taken to improve your environmental credentials have a strong and potentially self-funding business case.

We truly believe that being Carbon Neutral doesn’t need to cost the Earth

With the UK Government’s commitment to a low carbon world, the drive to carbon neutrality and achieving net zero is dominating organisations’ future decision making. However, many organisations believe the changes that they will have to make to achieve net zero will be time-consuming, costly and with all the conflicting information, a little daunting. This is far from the truth, as there are many incentives to help businesses become greener and leaner without costing the earth.

Using Auditel’s simple 4 step process, we help organisation demystify and provide clarity to this complex subject of achieving net zero. We deliver expert guidance and resources so you can achieve a BSI recognised specification PAS2060 for carbon neutrality if you desire, while you progress on the longer-term net zero journey.

Procurement decisions have a major impact both positive and negative on an organisation’s or company’s performance; while failure to meet compliance requirements, has the potential to inflict a negative impact on morale and performance. 

Many companies and organisations can find their resources stretched be it: funds, time and expertise which are put under further pressure when exposed to changes in physical working environments due to sudden and regular changing restrictions while also dealing with the changes when trading with the E.U.

We can provide expert, impartial and continued procurement advise. Working in partnership with you and your teams to develop bespoke solutions tailored to your needs and goals.

Our work provides benchmarking reports; and  is often done at no direct cost, the cost being factored into savings made or the contracts we negotiate on your behalf, while reducing the time and effort that you have to expend, to get to the point where you can make an informed decision.

In the current climate, with heightened levels of uncertainty and budgets being stretched, Auditel are your trusted partner to ensure you are maximising every opportunity.

Regardless of which industry or sector you’re in, for example; manufacturing, charity, retail, financial services, or education – our independent analysis unlocks cash that once identified, will be redirected back into your control. It’s then up to you to choose how to utilise it, either by delivering addition dividends to shareholders, reinvesting it back into the company’s growth via new initiatives or innovative products and services.

Across the UK the Auditel network assists over 2,000 clients of all sectors. We don’t claim to specialise in certain industries as each client is unique and we find that the client relationship is key, more than their given sector.

From national charities and household names, to independent retailers and education providers our experience gathered over the last 21 years means we’ve encountered and resolved most supplier issues for our clients.

Each project for each client is unique, and no organisation should promise savings in resources or finance until a full review has been conducted, however as examples here are some savings achieved for our clients;

Chartered Accountants
Electricity: 25%
Telecoms: 36%
Stationery: 30%
Insurance: 14%
Waste: 9%

Kitchen Manufacturers
Electricity: 33%
Gas: 19%
Fixed Line: 32%
Mobile: 51%

Solicitors
Card Payments: 24%
Water Rates: 29%
Hygiene Services: 39%
Waste & Recycling: 55%
Postage & DX: 23%

Private School

Gas: £19,000
Water: £4,000
VAT Refund – Electricity: £32,000
VAT Refund – Gas: £3,000
Climate Change Levy Refund: £26,000

It is of course about more than savings, this Commercial Truck Dealer and Vehicle Rental client also cited the following benefits;

  • Liaison with contractors during expansion
  • Bespoke reporting on larger consuming meters
  • Enhanced management reporting
  • Independent ongoing cost-centre reviews
  • Assistance with meter issues and replacement
  • Support on ESOS compliance, Phase 1 and 2, and SECR compliance

“Since 2018 Auditel have been able to achieve fantastic savings on our energy bills, and even got the original savings back-dated! We also engaged Auditel to research different merchant payment gateways for us and they came up trumps once again. They provide a professional and speedy service with a dedicated account manager, so we’ve felt supported through the entire process.
We would highly recommend their services if you want to save money for your business, with minimum hassle.”

Bishop & MillerOperations Manager

As members of Suffolk Chamber, we became aware of the assistance Auditel could provide in independently assessing and managing our utility costs. Paul and his team are now delivering regular reports detailing our consumption at each location and savings are presently running at 25%. We are now discussing further projects and I’d recommend having a chat with Paul, not least as he’s helping us recoup more than our Chamber membership fee.

Jackson Civil EngineeringServices Manager

The process for reviewing our costs was painless and efficient, and we were very impressed by Auditel’s knowledge of the options available to us in all of the areas that they reviewed. The savings that will result from their suggested actions are significant and could not otherwise have been achieved without many hours of research by ourselves. In addition Auditel have access to special pricing tariffs which are not available to independent businesses. We have no hesitation in recommending the service to our clients so that they can enjoy the same cost saving benefits.

Plus AccountingPartner

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great working relationship that we have had. You and your team’s expertise and guidance has been much appreciated. I wish you personally all the best for the future. I have kept your contact details as I may need you in my next life!

Premier Travel GroupFinance Director

We first engaged Connect Consultancy in 2010 to analyse and manage the electricity and gas supplies across the group, with savings of up to 21% and 25% respectively, and valuable resource benefits. We have found Paul Copsey at Connect Consultancy very easy to deal with. They were a local and recommended company who have filled a gap where we lacked the time and resource to monitor our energy expenditure. Through their analysis they identified such anomalies as a faulty meter at one of our branch offices and have taken away the hassle of dealing direct with the energy suppliers.

Ryans' Insurance GroupFinance Manager

We have been very pleased with the professional and diligent approach that Gail Clark and her team at Auditel have adopted to reviewing a significant proportion of our operating costs. We have been delighted to secure savings across the spectrum of our services.

UK Fashion & Textiles AssociationCEO
suppliers

Since 1994 the Auditel network across the UK has invested significant effort into nurturing and developing successful relationships with reputable suppliers. Our independence ensures we remain agile enough to engage with those new to a sector, should we believe it to be in our clients’ interests, and equally to no longer engage if that becomes appropriate.

We maintain a significant national supplier database, capable of serving the requirements of the most demanding of UK wide organisations. In addition we recognise the often cultural and environmental value of regional and local suppliers and work hard to cultivate effective relationships in all cost area sectors.

With our help, our clients are introduced to suppliers with competitively priced products and services, fair & reasonable terms, reliable billing provision and proven customer service. Equally the suppliers we engage with are introduced to client opportunities they would not usually be aware of or able to tender for, and with little expense from a sales and marketing perspective.

Many suppliers attend the annual Auditel UK Supplier Exhibition – a great way to further develop working relationships and demonstrate evolving products and services to the Auditel network.
