At Home:

Are you stuck with a heavy carbon elephant or are there a range of improvements to be made, according to your budget and lifestyle priorities?

  • Maybe the double glazing you were thinking of installing should be put on the back burner, and you should focus first on loft insulation?
  • Maybe simply improving the lagging on your hot water cylinder will reap immediate, low-cost savings.

At your workplace:

You can start saving energy today by looking at obvious areas that waste energy:

  • Minimise demands on heating, air conditioning, lighting and water, by keeping doors and windows closed and turning equipment off when it’s not needed — especially when buildings are unoccupied.
  • For schools, offices and public buildings, as lighting accounts for 14% of total energy consumption, introducing low-energy lights in corridors and storeroom areas, can reap immediate benefits.
