Are You Aware of Your Carbon Footprint?
24 May 2017
There’s been a lot of talk recently about vehicles and reducing emissions by making the move from diesel (contrary to previous recommendations) but have you ever thought about the impact office buildings have? Buildings have an important role to play in reducing CO2 emissions and the use of natural resources in space heating and cooling and lighting. They emit 40% of all greenhouse gases, so tackling both inefficient electrics and the insulation and air tightness of a building is essential. We have to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by almost 625 million tonnes (from the 780 million recorded for the UK in 1990) and so making sure our buildings are well maintained and energy efficient is key.
