About Us

The Retail Energy Forum (REF) is a collection of leading retailers whose main aim is: “to share best practice to reduce the carbon footprint of every member company”.  The REF was formed in 2006 and has worked closely with government in the development of energy policies to support the UK’s transition to a low carbon economy. The REF is a dynamic forum that understands and influences climate change policies, but concentrates on sharing practical measures that result in real and measurable energy reduction.
