Our Solution

Initially Callidus carried out an engagement session with all existing and new contractors; with the aim of improving standards through best practice presentations and documentation reviews. Following this, we implemented new systems and processes throughout the Energy team.

Callidus have now become an authoriser within the New Engineering Technologies process, and therefore all new energy efficiency ideas have been reviewed for design risk prior to testing / rollout stages.

Benefits of using Callidus

In the 2015 / 2016 financial year over 100 projects were carried out by the Energy team; with no reported accidents or incidents. In this time Marks and Spencer engaged several new suppliers with Callidus engaged to ensure compliance with M&S coporate policy.

With an enhanced budget for the 2016 / 2017 financial year, the role of Callidus has been increased and we are now providing a 1.5 person seconded CDMA resource to the Energy team at Marks and Spencer.
