Climate Change: “I can’t make a difference”
Over 40% of CO2 emissions in the UK come directly from what individuals do, i.e using electricity, heating homes.
The great thing about reducing your carbon footprint is that simple changes make a big difference:
- Turning off lights
- Switching appliances off at the mains
- Turning your thermostat down by one degree
This not only reduces your carbon footprint but will reduce your fuel bills too!
If every home can install 270mm of loft insulation it would save £3.8 million tones of CO2, that’s the same as the annual emissions for around 650,000 homes
As much as a third of the heat you pay for could be escaping through your roof. Most loft insulation materials work by preventing the movement of heated air through the material. The Government says that you cut your energy bill by up to 20% through effectively insulating your loft.
Everyone can make a difference by taking action today!
