Companies cannot improve energy efficiency on their own. Several types of organizations can act as facilitators to help companies, such as industry associations, research institutes, consultants, Cleaner Production Centers, universities, chambers of commerce and NGOs.

By helping companies to improve energy efficiency you can:

  • Help industry reduce costs and exposure to rising energy prices
  • Develop useful skills and experience within your organization and as an individual
  • Contribute to an improved environment through reduced greenhouse gas emissions
