This workshop-based tool will help you to understand your company ‘energy culture’ – in short, this is ‘how we do things around here’.  It includes a short questionnaire to help measure the existing culture – and to see what better culture looks like – and exercises to discuss how to improve and move the organisation up the ‘culture ladder’.

Understanding your energy culture is a new tool adapted from the well-known Understanding your HSE culture tool. The Energy Institute has adapted the research and learning behind improving safety culture to improve energy management performance. It was created with funding from:

  • Shell
  • Energy and Technical Services Ltd.
  • Energy Institute
  • UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) (research grant)
  • The EI Hearts and Minds research fund
