Want to see the evidence?



We want to help organisations to understand the positive impact that they can have on the world by taking some simple steps and implementing a behaviour change programme that creates lasting effects.                             

This is why we created the EnCO Accreditation and Programme, which is our expert guide on becoming a more energy conscious organisation and reducing your environmental impact.


We believe all organisations should be doing their bit to reduce their environmental footprint. An effective behaviour change strategy is an important part of that.


The EnCO Gap Analysis will help you and your organisation to effectively manage behaviour change initiatives that improve energy efficiency and drive us towards net-zero.


Become an EnCO practitioner or find one for yourself that can help you to start your journey towards becoming an EnCO today. We all have a part to play in net-zero

Behaviour change is a vital element of the energy efficiency across the economy needed on the road to net zero, often at lower cost than installation of physical measures or improving the savings of installed measures. There is evidence Lead Assessors and Energy Auditors may not be fully considering behaviour change as an important opportunity to reduce both energy bills and emissions. Therefore, there is a pressing need for upskilling in this area as assessors prepare for the next ESOS Phase.

The Energy Conscious Organisation (EnCO) online training course has been designed to equip Lead Assessors and energy auditors to identify and implement behavioural opportunities. The course is run on a not-for-profit basis by the Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA) and the Energy Institute. It also provides CPD relevant to the continued learning that ESOS Lead Assessors should be doing to keep their knowledge up to date.
