Many organisations want to better understand how energy conscious they are and are seeking initiatives that allow them to evidence that their energy management approaches effectively involve their people. Jes Rutter, Managing Director for JRP Solutions, reports how the Energy Conscious Organisation (EnCO) initiative helps organisations to improve their energy efficiency.

What is the fastest and most cost-effective way of reducing energy consumption, energy costs and CO2 emissions? The answer is through people in organisations. Reducing the impacts of climate change requires behavioural changes. We will not reach net zero without addressing the people factor.


The Energy Conscious Organisation (EnCO) global initiative aims to engage, empower and equip organisations and energy professionals to enable significant savings through people. It integrates employee engagement with technical opportunities to reduce energy consumption, costs and carbon emissions to accelerate the journey to net zero.


Who is behind EnCO?

Formed by the Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA) with support from the Energy Institute (EI), the EnCO team has well over 100 years of combined energy management experience behind them and they want to share their expert knowledge with the rest of the world.
