Environmental Sustainability Tools and Helpline

The Sustainable Business Partnership CIC, a not-for-profit organisation, have been working with museums across the South East to help them improve the energy and water efficiency of their premises and minimise waste; saving money and reducing environmental impact.


They offer a free, impartial environmental helpline, covering topics such as:

  • Environmental Policy
  • Recycling and waste ‘Duty of Care’
  • Renewable energy
  • Energy efficient lighting
  • Staff, volunteer and visitor engagement

Sustainability Tools

…as well as a number of tools to help you monitor utility usage and spend and identify initiatives for improvement:

  • Utility Monitoring Spreadsheet – track energy and water consumption
  • Lighting Replacement Calculator – work out potential energy and cost savings
  • Walk-Around Checklist – identify low-cost, quick-win measures you can implement
  • Energy Tariff Calculator – compare quotes, taking into account your actual energy usage and standing charges
