amber energy, the Cardiff-based energy management consultancy and utilitech pioneer, has joined the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) to further address the Utilities Trilemma® and help building owners and occupiers to cut their bills, increase their energy efficiency, and reduce their carbon footprint.

The UKGBC’s mission is to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment, by transforming the way it is planned, designed, constructed, maintained and operated. It does this by focusing on five key areas: climate change, resource use, nature and biodiversity, health and wellbeing, and socio-economic impact.

This mission fits perfectly with amber energy’s focus on balancing business needs with the urgent requirement to improve sustainability and limit the environmental impact of organisations’ operations, all while saving its clients money.

amber energy has a lot of experience in the property sector – particularly through its Community Utilities division – spanning purpose-built student accommodation, build-to-rent, hotels and senior living, and works with stakeholders at every level, from investors and developers to residents and commercial tenants.

Nick Proctor, founder and CEO of amber energy, said, “We are delighted to have been accepted as a member of the UKGBC. amber energy and its group of companies share the same vision for all of our clients – to implement the most efficient energy management processes to address commercial and operational requirements, and do all of this while working to reduce emissions to net zero. It may seem like a lofty ambition, but our mission is to do all we can to save the planet.

“We actively work with our clients, partners and the wider industry to help push sustainability up the agenda, and our membership of UKGBC will help us to further this ambition as part of an organisation whose values mirror our own.

“If we all make enough noise, push for meaningful and systemic change, and lead by example we can show that it’s possible to run profitable businesses and develop our built environment without it costing the earth.”
