The Energy Saving Trust was formed in 1992. In November 2011, the Energy Saving Trust Foundation was formed as a social enterprise with charitable status.
The Energy Saving Trust Foundation gives impartial, accurate and independent advice to communities and households on how to reduce carbon emissions, how to use water more sustainably and how to save money on energy bills.
We work in partnership with government, local authorities, third sector organisations and businesses. Our activities include:
"Climate change is a major threat to the natural environment. Saving energy is one of the most effective ways in which the general public can contribute to carbon saving. I am pleased that the Energy Saving Trust’s new status enables it to continue in its mission to help people introduce energy saving measures in their homes."
Dr Helen Phillips, Chief Executive, Natural England
"The Energy Saving Trust has been a trusted source of high quality and impartial information on energy efficiency, carbon emissions and fuel poverty for almost 20 years. It is good news for homeowners, businesses, local authorities and other organisations that this vital work will continue as the Trust moves into a new phase of its development."
Dr Paul Leinster CBE, Chief Executive, Environment Agency
"The Energy Saving Trust has played a valuable role in recent years, in supplying energy and water-saving related information to charities, community groups and individuals. It is reassuring to know that as a result of having been awarded charitable status, the experience and evidence that has been gathered will not be lost, but can be built upon."
Liz Goodwin, Chief Executive, WRAP
"The Energy Saving Trust delivers enormous benefits to people and the planet in an extremely cost-effective way. Becoming a charity should help it to scale-up its practical impact, whilst remaining an independent and trusted voice in the energy debate."
Peter Madden, Chief Executive, Forum for the Future
"The Energy Saving Trust’s transition to becoming a charity is something to be welcomed. In this period of rising energy prices and tighter carbon targets having the strong, independent and authoritative voice of the Energy Saving Trust is enormously important."
Trewin Restorick, CEO, Global Action Plan – creating the climate for change
"It’s fantastic that the Energy Saving Trust will be providing people with reliable information on saving energy so they can cut their bills and keep warm. We wish the Energy Saving Trust all the best in its new life as a charity and look forward to continuing to work together in the future."
Andy Atkins, Executive Director, Friends of the Earth
