Sarah Bateman, chief executive of Unify Energy, explains why spending money on solar panels, so-called green energy and EV charging points might not be the wisest thing for businesses looking to reduce their environmental impact to do right now.

Instead, companies should focus more on collecting data that is easy to understand so that they have a clearer picture of what they need to do to make a real difference.
