Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme

Read about how CUB can ensure your organisation complies with ESOS.

What is ESOS?

ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) is a mandatory scheme for organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria. It was designed to drive down Carbon emissions by providing greater transparency and creating ownership of reducing carbon emissions for large businesses.

You can find the official government guidance on ESOS here.

Do I need to comply with ESOS?

If your business falls under the following criteria, you may need to conduct an ESOS assessment. Other stipulations and qualification criteria need to be considered, so if you need clarification, please get in touch.

  • employs 250 or more people
  • has an annual turnover of over £44 million and an annual balance sheet total above £38 million

If you qualify for ESOS and your organisation is fully covered by ISO 50001, you do not need to conduct an ESOS assessment. Instead, you must notify the Environment Agency that you are compliant with ESOS.
