100 hours to save carbon

15 August 2008

Commit 100 hours to saving your business energy and money and CIBSE will provide the knowledge and ideas to help you in its new Carbon Saving programme.

Launching its third Carbon Saving programme last month, CIBSE has changed from its previous ‘100 days of Carbon Clean Up’ to focus on ‘100 staff hours of effort’ dedicated to energy reducing activities between now to the end of November. This is aimed at enabling companies to prepare themselves for Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and Display Energy Certificates (DECs).

The activities and progress are logged on a personalised Time Card via the 100 hours website

CIBSE will provide free guidance on preparing for EPCs and DECs, and the tools to encourage monitoring energy use in order to measure and manage it. CIBSE will issue new initiatives each week throughout the programme that will, it says, be ‘fun, exciting and easy to do’, and consistent and appropriate advice.

Last year’s campaign saw 700 organisations sign up to cut carbon emissions from their buildings. Commercial and public buildings in the UK account for 25 per cent of UK’s total carbon output.
