Is your organisation missing out on energy savings simply through a lack of employee involvement? A new study by the Carbon Trust suggests that you may be, showing that less than a quarter of UK employees have been asked to help save energy at work - and fewer than half are concerned about the cost of energy for their employer.

The Trust says that its research highlights how UK workplaces are missing out on more than £300m a year in savings that could be achieved through encouraging employees to adopt behaviours that reduce energy use and waste. And its survey uncovers a number of insights into employee attitudes and behaviour that can be helpful in designing effective campaigns.

"Employees are the greatest asset of UK business, but when most of us enter the office we take far less care to save energy and use resources efficiently than we do at home," says Richard Rugg, MD of Programmes at the Carbon Trust. "The good news is that employees are willing to help and by understanding how employees act in the workplace, businesses can unlock significant bottom line savings."
