# 60% of firms taking energy efficiency action post-ESOS

Six in ten firms that completed an ESOS assessment have taken action, according to initial survey data compiled by The Energyst.

According to the survey, 61% of organisations mandated to undertake an energy audit under the Energy Savings Obligation Scheme (ESOS) said they had taken subsequent actions. A similar percentage (60%) said the ESOS exercise had been worthwhile, although 40% said it was not.

Some 64% said that their ESOS audit had been thorough and suggested multiple energy efficiency improvements. However, despite ESOS requiring directors to sign off the audit, around six in ten (58%) said board level engagement in energy efficiency had not increased as a result.
