Here Richard started from scratch transforming energy from being a cost that the business just incurred, to being one of the biggest opportunities for profit within the P&L. Along the way, there was a transformation in the energy efficiency of the 1,500 buildings in the estate, a big behavioural and cultural change with the 40,000 employees and the creation of a hugely capable team.
