The HBOS Group has signed a partnership deal with Carbon Trust to further the £1m savings made at its Leeds and Halifax head branches through energy efficiency practices.

Carbon Trust is a non-profit, Government organisation that specialises in providing consultancy and assistance on energy cost-saving measures.

These services will be delivered to HBOS through Action Energy, the Trust’s energy efficiency programme.

Before making any changes, Action Energy will undertake an assessment of HBOS current procedures to assess its performance.

Martin Batt, corporate responsibility manager for HBOS, said with energy taxes being based on the size of a company and the amount of energy used, it was imperative to examine how efficiencies could be introduced. Taxation and environmental pressures were only likely to increase as further demands were made for companies to operate efficiently.

Batt said: ‘Partnerships are the way forward and this one with Action Energy will help our clients as much as the bank itself.’
