CHiP the dog’s post-Brexit statement

CHiP the dog is an expert in saving energy! Watch below to see what he has to say about energy taxes!

If you’re an energy manager then the only thing that’s guaranteed post-Brexit will mean government spending cuts and more taxes.

Most of our climate change legislation raises taxes, so the government is unlikely to do anything to change that.

Will ESOS change? Yes – it raises no taxes so ISO 50001 is most likely to be the common ground.

Contact Will Todd from Carbon Architecture to discuss the potential issues further.
