IMServ has pledged to #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day which has been set as 1 August 2018. Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what earth can regenerate in that year.


Justin Vroone, Commercial Director at IMServ, one of the UK’s leading Energy Data Collection and Meter Operations service providers, explains: “Our aim is to #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day by at least 21 days. The sad reality is that from this day on we are using an unsustainable amount of the Earth’s resources. Humans demand more from the earth than it can produce and carbon emissions are the biggest culprit. Carbon emissions make up 60 per cent of humanity’s Ecological Footprint.

“Buildings consuming too much electricity are the slow silent environmental drains that can be overlooked. Commercial premises are regularly the biggest culprits of excess energy spend, however with careful monitoring and efficient metering these losses can be reversed.

“For more than 24 years we have been using metering data to power energy efficiency for businesses across the UK. Simple metering measures once put in place mean that it’s not too late to #MoveTheDate.”

IMServ is actively working with its customers to #movethedate using its team of data interpreters to dig into the metering data of its 282,000 metering points to identify opportunities for improvements in building and equipment performance and the ability to reduce consumption and their demands on the environment.

IMServ’s five steps to #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day:

  1. Metering: install a device to meter data from electricity, gas and water consumption, this can quickly deliver actionable real-time energy insights. Metering data is a crucial piece of the energy management jigsaw that a business needs to make and create a more energy efficient building that will, by default improve equipment performance and reduce ever-increasing energy costs. Saving energy is five times cheaper than producing it!
  2. Data intelligence: analyse the data gathered from metering to helping solve energy waste problems and provide access to intelligence on how, when and where energy is being sapped.
  3.  Act on waste: acting on the metered data intelligence to make positive changes to a buildings energy use and therefore deliver tangible energy and cost savings to the bottom line.
  4. Think eco-travel: make conscious choices to your everyday travel and commute, cycling, walking, car share or embrace the electric vehicle.
  5. Reduce, reuse, recycle: from paper to plastic, make efforts everyday with everything from packaging to clothing.
