ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme)


ESOS (the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) is a government initiative aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the UK. This is in response to the UK's Climate Change Act which has set out a  legally- binding goal to cut greenhouse gases by 80% by 2050.

Who does it affect?

The ESOS scheme is mandatory for any large organisation meeting the qualifying criteria:

  • More than 250 employees.
  • A turnover of more than £42.5 million.
  • An annual balance sheet total of £36.5 million.
  • Only affects private and third - sector organisations ( not the public sector).
  • If the organisation is part of a UK incorporated group if any part of the group qualifies then the whole group must comply.
  • Franchisees are only affected if they are large enough on their own to qualify
