Policy

Promoting ambitious policymaking is an important part of Energy Saving Trust’s mission.

We work to influence UK governments to develop a positive and effective policy framework for sustainable energy. This involves directly working with civil servants and collaborating with other stakeholder agencies.

Our policy work is informed by our contact with households, businesses and public administrations, and from our cross-UK and international insight.
