Bear in mind that this entry is the main way to convince judges, who will not know the detail as intimately as you do, so it is important to set out a structured ‘pitch’, with evidence to back up any claims.

Changed behaviour is a key area for embedding energy reduction, so this category aims to reward companies that inspire and motivate their staff to engage in and reduce energy consumption within an organisation. The whole picture will be taken into account, from strategy to communication and general staff awareness throughout the organisation. Credit will be given for the way in which change is embedded into regular practice within the company – so evidence of that change is welcomed.
