Our Charter

This Charter has been prepared by the Energy Saving Association, whose aims are to promote and support the reduction of energy consumption, particularly by commerce and industry, on a global basis. The ESA believes that energy efficiency is the single, most important future source of energy. The ESA recognises that energy use contributes significantly to the threat of climate change and that we must all play our part by taking sensible and considered action to reduce energy consumption. Membership is open to organisations, companies and individuals who participate in energy saving initiatives, and who share the common aims as set out in this Charter:

I / we participate in energy saving initiatives because I/we understand the importance of helping commerce and industry to reduce energy consumption as the world’s demand for power generation increases, with consequential effects on climate change, energy availability and rising costs.
As responsible professionals with the knowledge and expertise to make a difference, we publish our aims and encourage others to:-
