Dr Organic

 

Introduction

Dr. Organic are the main suppliers for the Holland and Barrett retail group and are a successful manufacturer and wholesaler of health and beauty goods. Dr. Organic pride themselves on sourcing natural ingredients to create products which don’t cost the Earth, with an aim to eventually become carbon neutral.

Challenges

Dr. Organic were looking to find the lowest cost renewable energy for their electricity supply at their head office and manufacturing plant in Swansea. In line with their company values and ethos, a key part of their specification meant that the energy must be renewable.

Solution

Dr Organic Commissioned Business Sense to carry out a complete cost analysis of the site, and provided the directors with quotations ranging from 12 to 48 months, and from five different energy suppliers and all supplying renewable energy

Result

Dr. Organic agreed a 36-month renewable energy deal with Orsted. The savings against their existing company’s renewal rates work out 2.3% cheaper, which means a total saving of £14,361 (an annual saving of £4,787).

Benefit

On the back of the energy savings, Dr. Organic commissioned Business Sense to provide an analysis on their LED lighting. This is now ongoing, as Business Sense have presented their findings to the Operations Director, who will then present to the board of directors.

Dr Organic are now truly on their way to their ultimate goal of becoming a carbon neutral company as they already have invested and installed a biomass plant.

“To help me cut through confusion and reduce number of calls received I commissioned Business Sense to help source our energy supply.  They carried out the project with speed and efficiency and found us a 100% renewables supplier at a great price.  I fully recommend them.”
