Take Opportunities to Gain Buy-in to your Energy Projects

Luke Richardson

By Luke Richardson, Environmental Partnership Manager, Virgin Trains East Coast

The aim of this presentation is to share my approaches and outline the key learning points I have identified in securing successful bids and persuading directors, managers and operational staff to engage with energy and environment issues. Including:

  • Knowing your organisation’s legislation, systems of work and funding criteria to define or restrict your approach to delivering energy projects.
  • Understanding your organisation and its limitations to provide opportunities to re-assess your approach and gain buy-in from others in the organisation.
  • Knowing when to refocus or halt your efforts.
  • Tapping into existing partnerships and developing new ones.
  • Using others in your team, empowered champions and persuading the right people at the right time to communicate the energy agenda.
  • New legislation as a tool to reinvigorate your campaigns, revisit your business cases, bring in new recruits or up-skill existing team members.
