Time: 13:00 – 14:00 GMT
A well-implemented energy management system is essential to achieving good energy performance. However, outstanding performance and continual improvement will only be achieved when there is a significant cultural swing in the organisation so that key elements of the system are adopted and embraced fully through behavioural initiatives. Therefore, aspiring companies wishing to maximise the benefits and adoption of their energy management system will need to consider their organisational culture.
The Energy Institute has developed the Understanding your energy culture tool to help organisations facilitate cultural change to improve energy efficiency. ETS are proud to have supported the Energy Institute (EI) by sponsoring and being instrumental with the development of this tool. Unlike traditional behavioural interventions which focus on changing the individual, the Energy Institute’s Understanding your energy culture targets the business culture. This approach acknowledges that company processes and people’s behaviour are not independent but must work together.
Join us on Tuesday 6th November at 13:00 – 14:00 where our Operations Director, Phil Bilyard will be discussing the importance of energy culture and what steps organisations can take to improve energy efficiency.
