Behaviour Change: Energy conservation

Sustainability, energy

The British Psychological Society’s Behaviour Change Advisory Group (BCAG) works to provide expert advice on behaviour change in the context of public policy. It co-ordinates production of Society publications on behaviour change issues and supports our responses to consultations on related topics. It provides an expert interface between the Society and government and other policy making bodies in relation to behaviour change issues.

The chair and 12 members of the group are drawn from across the different Divisions and Sections of the Society. They are experts on behaviour change in different domains.
