Our everyday activities generate emissions of carbon dioxide and other harmful greenhouse gases which lead to climate change, possibly the greatest challenge facing humanity.
Rooms are often over lit. Do you need lights switched on when you have natural lighting and you are looking at a computer screen? Does the whole room need to be lit, if it is only partially occupied?
In most locations, heating and cooling account for the greatest use of energy.
The average UK individual’s carbon emissions from travel are higher than from their home (heating, lighting, cooking, electrical etc.) Although it is not always convenient or easy to avoid using a car, please consider other options. As well as cost savings, there are often considerable health benefits.
Reducing, reusing and recycling waste also saves energy as we don't need to extract, transport and transform raw materials to make new products.
