At Sønderborg Supply employees spot the guzzlers
“This is our plotter” says Lisa Nielsen, waste manager and local project leader at Sønderborg Supply for European Enterprise’s Climate Cup.
One of the employees at Sønderborg supply pointed out that the plotter, a machine use for printing big cards, was often in a stand-by position the entire day and therefore suggested this as a place with energy savings potential. We move down the hall towards the coffeemaker, which another employee pointed out as an energy guzzler. A third is surprised by the fact that all refrigerators also contain a freezer, which is not necessary:
“we have told all our 150 employees, that they must bring all of their suggestions to how we can save power/energy. There is a lot of potential” Lisa Nielsen declares.
The many suggestions from the employees are part of an internal competition. Each suggestion receives 5 points. If the suggestion is not noticed during the energy inspection by the official energy consultant from the European Enterprise Climate Cup, this suggestion receives an additional 5 points. Sønderborg supply has thus made its own little competition with the internal pointscore and the winner with the most points, will receive a prize.
