Initiative to get employees to reduce carbon emissions launched

The Carbon Trust has launched a new scheme to encourage business owners to use their employees as a "secret weapon" in reducing their carbon emissions.

The Carbon Trust has launched a new scheme to encourage business owners to use their employees as a "secret weapon" in reducing their carbon emissions.


Two million tonnes of CO2 could be saved by businesses in the UK by encouraging staff to make changes to their behaviour and day to day activities according to the Carbon Trust. These could be simple measures such as turning off lights in rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms when not in use, turning off PCs and monitors properly at night and turning the heating turn by 1°C.

The Carbon Trust also recommends that businesses should use the phone or videoconferencing software instead of driving to meetings with associates and clients to make more significant carbon reduction.

More companies are now recognising the importance of cutting their business carbon footprint, especially those that are required to report under the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, and the environmental experts at Apollo Enviro can help you make the required changes to reduce your emissions.

Apollo Enviro run tailored Environmental Awareness Workshops to improve employee awareness and demonstrate changes that could be made within your business by your staff, to make real advances towards energy efficiency.

As well as helping you reduce your emissions, Apollo Enviro also offer a number of other services, including helping your business work towards ISO14001 accreditation by implementing an Environmental Management System to show your clients and customers that you are dedicated towards energy efficiency and installing voltage optimisation units to automatically reduce the energy your workplace uses.

If you're serious about reducing the CO2 emissions produced by your business practices, contact Apollo Enviro today to find out what they can do for you.
