Although each startup and SME consumes relatively small energy amounts at work, the collective environmental impact of 20 million SMEs in the EU is massive, contributing to 64% of environmental impact. For this reason, active engagement of startups and young SMEs is essential in order to reach the 20-20-20 EU goals and there is market potential for almost all enterprises to cost effectively reduce their energy consumption.

START2ACT aims to unleash the potential of energy savings at European startups and young SMEs via behavioural change actions. Through a set of innovative educational and capacity building measures, START2ACT will trigger action to implement energy efficiency measures by young entrepreneurs and their emerging enterprises as well as by the owners and staff of young SMEs at their offices.

Tip of the day
Make your staff aware of energy consumption: A large part of energy consumption is hidden in the behaviour of your employees.
