To avoid the risk of dangerous climate change, it is generally accepted that it will be necessary to limit the concentration of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
This will require substantial reductions in global emissions over the coming decades.
If Earth gets hotter, some of the important changes could happen:
How many are you already doing? Who is the greenest in the class?
Recycling ink cartridges
Producing goods with less packaging
Using solar energy
Switching to energy saving light bulbs
Using a smaller font (less paper)
Using web based technology – less paper
Becoming a paperless office
Switching off lights at night (shop windows)
Using recycled batteries
Buying vehicles of the business with less co2 emissions
Using conference call instead of travelling to a meeting
Encourage staff to cycle to work or car share
Switching to a wind turbine *see next slide as it appears in the case study
Reducing your energy use can save you money.
Reducing your use of raw materials can cut your costs, minimise your waste and lower your waste disposal bills.
Reducing your water use can cut your water bills and also lower your waste water disposal costs.
Recycling equipment and materials could make you money and save on disposal costs - you may be able to sell old equipment or parts to subsidise the cost of buying new ones.
Taking steps to prevent environmental damage will reduce the risk of having to carry out potentially expensive repairwork in the event of an environmental incident. (BP)
