Better energy efficiency may well be the most rapid way to reduce CO2 emissions.

In the workplace one of the easiest options for energy efficiency is lighting. You can reduce the amount of energy to light your workplace by:

  • Switch off lights in empty rooms. It is a popular myth that it is cheaper to leave a light on.
  • Use daylight where possible. It’s free and more pleasant than artificial light.
  • Only use required lights. For example a teacher working alone in a classroom may only require the row of lights above her desk.
  • Ensure outside lights are only on when required.
