Our Clients

Bowlplex is one of the UK’s leading bowling and entertainment companies and was recently acquired by the 2 leading players in the space. A number of years ago we entered into a CVA and as a result had a poor credit rating. The energy suppliers wanted us to pay a £300k security deposit. It was a justifiable request on paper however Sustainable Advantage felt the business was in a much better financial position. They worked tirelessly for 2 months to convince the suppliers to waive the deposit requirements which they eventually did.


When we engaged Sustainable Advantage to manage our waste, there was a lot to do over our 200 sites! We had a wide range of suppliers and were receiving nearly 1,000 invoices per month. Over a six-month period, Sustainable Advantage rationalised, consolidated, aligned and optimised our commercial arrangements and the results have been fantastic: a saving in excess of 20%, a single consolidated monthly invoice with all backing data, auditable compliance records, an online portal for all the information we need and excellent account management

What others say about us


I think what makes Sustainable Advantage stand out from their competitors is the fact that they try harder. It sounds easy but they really do get into the detail and meticulously consider every angle to help us obtain the best gas and electricity rates. Whether that is when they go to market, the suppliers they invite to tender, how they validate the tender data all the way through to their tender negotiation and subsequent account management.

Pret A Manger

Sustainable Advantage have worked with us for over 4 years and are very much embedded within our business as our energy support services partner. The success of the relationship has come from the fact that they offer so many energy services that not only reduce our energy cost but that help everything energy related run smoothly.

Pret A MangerFinance Director

We engaged Sustainable Advantage to help us reduce our energy usage via staff engagement and behavioural change. This is no easy task within a hospital environment where many staff are reluctant to change.

Alpha Schools

Sustainable Waste Services have looked after our private school portfolio in London and Home Counties plus our regional city colleges for the past 5 years and do a fantastic job. They ensure a speedy response to any management issue (which is rare) and take the trouble to get to know the individual site’s characteristics.
