This report details the results from a survey of C-level executives who were asked for opinions and attitudes towards energy efficiency.

Information was gathered through a quantitative research among executives from organisations participating in the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism’s Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) Program. A total of 60 of 220 companies participating in the program at the time were included in the survey.

The sample for the survey was defined by a participant’s senior and executive decision-making responsibility not only in relation to energy expenditure but other key areas of the organisation’s business. The sample included chief executive officers, chief financial officers, managing directors and executive directors. Sustainability managers and others with a limited remit within the organisation focused on sustainability and related issues were not included.
