Major Energy Users' Council
For almost thirty years medium size and larger organisations have come together through the Major Energy Users Council (MEUC) to ensure they are buying their utilities cost effectively and managing their use intelligently to avoid unnecessary waste.
Representing Member Interests
The Major Energy Users' Council started life in 1987 as the then nationalised fuel supply industries prepared for privatisation and larger customers got ready for the introduction of competition in gas and electricity supply. Today MEUC representatives sit on government, regulatory and supply industry committees, representing member views as relayed to us through the meetings and report back on developments and initiatives. The Council provides a raft of services through meetings, publications and on demand support to its members.
Understanding Member Needs
Total and MEUC have worked together for a number of years and in numerous ways. With dual goals of presenting MEUC members with an up-to-date supplier perspective on industry issues and understanding member priorities, Total’s involvement includes representation on committees, speaking at member events, hosting and sponsorship of meetings, and contributions to member publications.
The Young Peoples Trust for the Environment (YPTE) is committed to promoting environmental education in schools around the UK. It organizes the Total Green School Awards each year in partnership with Total.
Making Young People Aware of Environmental Challenges
Created in 1982, charitable trust, YPTE, encourages young people’s understanding of the environment (such as biodiversity, climate change and recycling) and of the need for sustainability. YPTE issues publications and organizes free school talks.
The Total Green School Awards: Recognizing Excellence in Environmental Education
YPTE and Total have teamed up to organize the Total Green School Awards (TGSA), open to schoolchildren aged 5 to 11, since 2006. The annual awards provide schools with a framework to stimulate greater environmental education across maths, science, technology, geography, arts and history. The judging criteria look for well-presented, original, cross-curricular initiatives that deliver strong messages. In 2013, over 45,000 schoolchildren took part in the initiative.
