How to keep your business eco-friendly and safe

Many businesses across the UK are going eco-friendly, especially as they return to their regular workforces after the pandemic. A big question for many construction site owners though, is how does being eco-friendly affect my security measures?

With the government’s pledge to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, almost half of all UK companies are now planning to increase their environment-related spending. The 2021 Manufacturers’ Organisation also showed that businesses are starting to look past the immediate cost saving drivers towards sustainability for the long term. Half of the respondents said they were taking steps towards great energy efficiency.

So, where does that put the construction industry?

It is shown that theft costs £800m to the construction industry a year which is a massive loss. Whether it’s theft of vehicles, machinery or materials – construction sites fall victim to huge losses in their businesses each year, all stemming from a lack of security.

With this type of risk, construction sites need to have strict security measures as this is the only way to combat the rising issue of theft. However, video surveillance systems can have a high energy consumption which is largely related to the electrical power required to operate the video servers, especially if they are running 24/7.
