UPP are committed to reducing environmental harm, and managing resources effectively in all areas of operation. Our incumbent energy contractor was up for review and it was time to see what else was available in a changing market.
What makes Indigo Swan different from our competitors?
The people. Ultimately, all consultants draw on similar resources to offer advice to customers, but the team at Indigo Swan took the time to understand our business and our exacting needs. They then worked hard to help us achieve our objectives. Their can-do attitude makes all the difference.
If you were to quantify the benefit of using Indigo Swan what would it be?
£120k of savings (across both supplies) in just two years. That’s approximately 5% of the anticipated spend.
How would you describe Indigo Swan to your peers?
A small energy consultancy that has a big impact.
What was important to you when making the decision to use Indigo Swan?
Sustainable, efficient, energy management is essential to UPP’s business, but with responsibilities to our long-term partners and their demanding students, service and transparency is also key.
