What is LESS?

LESS is a service we have developed with our private clients which we are offering to the broader Life Science sector. It is a proven, unique approach, validated in the Life Science sector – to quickly identify poor performing laboratories offering opportunities with easy to access input data We have a detailed list of laboratory specific opportunities which have been successful which we can access.




  • Starts with benchmarking a number of “target” laboratory facilities
  • Follows toll-gate steps
  • Each step is plug & play (these are linked but we can deliver any of the steps independently)
  • Circular process – energy monitoring ensures changes are maintained

The benefits

Here’s why LESS is more:


  • A low cost service which is quick and easy to use, to save energy and reduce CO2 emission
  • Delivered by experts in the industry – who understand laboratories
  • Risk free decisions due to toll-gated approach, with guaranteed results
  • Identifies significant energy users and big opportunities to save money and reduce CO2
  • Aligns with corporate drivers for zero carbon, supports energy management and sustainability stakeholders deliver their targets
  • Leverages key data from our data-base of life science laboratories (UK & Europe)

Why us?

Laboratories can use 10-100 times more energy than used by houses, they are SEU (significant energy users) and can be the most energy intensive buildings on campus.


For a small retained fee, we can quickly identify poorly performing laboratory facilities and unlock significant energy savings 10-50%reduction is achievable.


Our toolkit includes some of the best and worst performing labs across the Life Science sector (UK & Europe, HE and private labs), including Swedish lab data (the home of energy efficiency).


Provides a recognized lab performance rating which can be peer reviewed and provide corporate level information, PR, ESG, CSR, stakeholder management and investor relations. Self-funding service based on energy saved.
