Big names sign up to cut carbon
A host of big name organisations have already signed up to switch off with CIBSE’s 100 days of carbon clean up campaign, which helps to raise awareness of simple behavioural steps and managerial initiatives that can cut carbon emissions from buildings.
The 100 days of carbon clean up campaign is run by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and sponsored by E.ON, the UK’s largest integrated energy company. The 100 Days Campaign aims to help participants realise the carbon saving potential of their workplace, encouraging staff behavioural changes and managerial initiatives to reduce carbon emissions from their buildings.
BBC Wales, Brent Cross Shopping Centre and Bolton Wanderers Football club are all taking action over the 100 days, along with London’s Natural History Museum, National Portrait Gallery and National Gallery.
The consultancy sector is well represented by firms such as Faber Maunsell, ARUP, White Young Green, CB Richard Ellis and Capita Symonds. With sustainability a key issue, architectural, engineering and construction firms can benefit from engaging with the campaign and highlighting the role they play in building for a sustainable future.
CIBSE President John Armstrong said: “We are pleased with the positive response to the campaign, numbers are high and participants seem motivated and enthusiastic.”
The first 100 participants in the campaign who return their CIBSE TM22 Energy Assessment form, the measurement tool used for the campaign, at the end of the 100 days will receive a free Display Energy Certificate (DEC).
It is not too late to sign-up; the 100 days runs until 20 December and participants can sign up during the campaign – further information is available at www.100days.co.uk or by ringing 020 8675 5211.
