energy consumption, less than a month after 49M launched its first Business Energy Rating Index. 49M released the new Business Energy Rating Index for corporates, retail and industrial businesses to encourage energy efficiency among businesses across the country and to contribute towards the development of sustainable business practices.

The 49M Business Energy Rating Index measure the electricity consumption of South African companies in terms of various parameters, the first of which being the usable space (all under roof operations excluding garages and store rooms as per SANS1544) occupied by the company in its buildings and operations. This provides an indication of the company’s energy efficiency, expressed as a function of electricity consumption per square metre of usable space.

All companies, including those that are already reporting on sustainability are urged to participate. By calculating the energy rating of companies and listing them on an energy rating index, it becomes possible to establish trends of efficiency measures within various sectors. The Index is part of 49M’s continuous call to all businesses to do their bit to save energy as the country’s power system remain constraint. The Index can be viewed at business.49M.co.za. Requests to participate in the 49M Business Energy Efficiency Index can also be submitted via the website.

The Index will be updated quarterly as more organisations provide information to participate.
