The UK Government guide to Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for businesses - what you need to know and do.

How does it help me?

  • If you don't own your premises, this resource will be useful to understand the obligations of your landlord. You may also want to obtain a copy of your EPC and see what measures you might be able to take to make improvements.

SSN's tips for users

  • Many businesses don't own their own premises, making it difficult to make significant changes. Understanding energy performance in buildings however can help you identify actions as well as things that you could discuss with your landlord.
  • You may need legal advice if you are carrying out improvements to premises at your own cost. In some cases these improvements must be reinstated at the end of the lease (which could mean reversing them at you cost!).
