Companies are becoming more aware of the public relations value of the green agenda to their business and are including information on their sustainability performance, including their energy consumption, in their annual corporate responsibility report.

This guide discusses the impact of the end-user on energy consumption in the workplace. It reviews the role of feedback as a change mechanism and the use of interfaces such as eco-visualisation to motivate and maintain change, using examples from BRE research.
