Auditel – Robert Park

Helping organisations on their journey to Net Zero in a measurable, meaningful, and potentially self-funding way.

I am passionate about enabling organisations to reduce their carbon footprint and to profit from the many associated benefits, such as potential cost reduction, increased attractiveness to current and future clients, plus the marketing and promotional opportunities that being on a carbon reduction journey brings.

With the UK Government’s commitment to a low carbon world and Net Zero targets by 2050, the drive to carbon neutrality and achieving Net Zero is dominating all organisations’ future decision-making. I will help you to negotiate the challenge of how to drive growth and profitability whilst investing in low carbon emitting technologies. I will develop and implement the plan for your organisation to achieve independent verification of carbon neutrality in the short-term, and speed up your journey to achieving Net Zero.  Supported by a network of Auditel specialists in procurement and cost reduction, plus Auditel’s extensive supplier relationships and unique pricing frameworks, I can also help you reduce your costs in over 100 different expenditure areas.

About Robert Park
My background is a woven from higher education management, the charity sector, telecoms, sales and research in materials chemistry.

I believe that there are huge opportunities for organisations and businesses especially to embrace sustainability and green solutions. I am based in Northern Ireland and works with business owners and FDs to provide ‘strategic procurement as-a-service’ (SPaaS), accelerating performance and profitability. I grew up in Larne, likes a bit of gym, plays golf(ish) and is currently learning Irish (Gaelige).

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 Net Zero. There is also the ever-increasing pressure in competitive tenders, consumer led demand, and internal staff resources, which means all companies are facing the challenge of decarbonisation and gaining recognised credentials for their environmental activity. Failure to address this runs the risk of losing out on competitive tenders and market share to other suppliers.

The challenge in addressing all these issues is then compounded by increasing scrutiny of environmental claims by investors, Government, consumers and environmental charities. The aim of engagement is to help organisations not just to navigate their path to Verified Carbon Neutral on their journey to Net Zero, but to fund it through our cost savings and procurement solutions from within the business where possible.

As part of the Auditel network I can call upon the support of over 100 procurement & carbon specialists who are all experts in their own field and we cover over 100 different cost categories, from energy to laundry, waste management to mobiles, office stationery to consumables. If a business is spending money on it, we can manage it on their behalf and deliver greater value than they could achieve themselves. I bring these experts in on a project-by-project basis for my clients to give them the expertise just when they need it. Our procurement specialists work alongside our clients Finance, Operational & Procurement teams providing the external help their organisation requires to deliver business transformation and sustainability. This saves clients time, money and heartache and gives them complete peace of mind that their expenditure is under control and they’re always on the most appropriate deals that offer the best value. This allows them to do what they do best: focus on growing the business.

Our Process

Our key focus is on making it as easy as possible for our clients to do business with us. From first engagement, through programme delivery, to on-going supplier management, we keep the process simple, allowing us to understand our client’s business objectives, align expectations and ensure the appropriate solutions are identified, agreed and implemented.


Delivering Carbon Solutions to REDUCE your EMISSIONS and 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.


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, because 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 (shown below), we can help your 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 for carbon neutrality as soon as possible, while you progress on the longer-term net zero journey.

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%

Card Payments: 24%

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

“Auditel has worked with us for many years on energy procurement and management and has recently delivered projects on waste management, hygiene services and recruitment agency procurement. These projects have resulted in significant direct annual savings and enhanced our internal processes, so we are also benefiting from indirect cost savings on administration and staff time.”

Procurement and Contracts ManagerYMCA St Paul’s Group

“Auditel arrived at a very good time for us. We were growing really fast with new acquisitions but without the resource or expertise to improve our procurement processes. Gill and Gordon impressed from the outset with their knowledge and professionalism and I was confident that they would deliver.”

Paul LawesChief Financial Officer.

“To a relatively small charity, Auditel are a breath of fresh air. You always know where you are with them. They do what they say they are going to do and are completely honest.”

Shaun NeedhamChief Executive

“The motivation was simply to not spend any more than we need to on purchases. By engaging Auditel we have the peace of mind that we have engaged sector experts who know the best commercial deals and service levels available.”

Andrew Wood,Finance Director

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.
