Leeds integrated waste management and energy producer AWM is a significant player in the waste industry operating its own fleet of vehicles and employing 360 staff across 5 sites and processing more than 600,000 tonnes of waste per annum. AWM is commited to waste to energy through Combined Heat and Power Plants, which last year generated enough energy to power more than 30,000 homes & businesses throughout the UK.
AWM has cut its energy bills by £165K a year after introducing new energy management and sustainability measures with Core Facility Services.
Energy management specialists at Core have analysed AWM’s energy data and identified where annual costs can be reduced and efficiency improved. The process involved working closely with suppliers to find the most cost-effective match for AWM’s energy usage.
As with many businesses, we found that AWM’s current contract and purchasing strategy was not giving best value for money for its current needs or its projected energy demand for the future.

Tim Shapcott, UK Commercial Director of AWM said: “Sustainability is very high on our agenda and Core has helped us reduce our costs as well as identifying where we can make improvements to energy efficiency across the business.
“We are already leading the field in sustainable waste resource management and recycling and we will now have more budget to dedicate to further innovation,” he added.
As well as wanting to keep costs low, AWM is very conscious of its impact on the environment and Core will be introducing measures to improve efficiency and help the firm meet its sustainability targets.
