Step Twelve, Working for a better world

Think about extending your influence outside of your home. If you’re working or studying, or even involved in a sports club you’ve a role to play in using energy wisely.

If you don’t have a Carbon Reduction Plan at work, then maybe you’re the person to draw one up and ensure its implementation.

It can deal with practical issues such as ensuring that your computer and printer are at a low energy setting, and turned off at work and at the weekend.

Perhaps you can take the radical step of removing the wastepaper baskets and replacing them with recycling bins instead.

Many of the measures outlined above can also be applied to the workplace.

Recently some Government Departments were startled to realize how much money they saved by simply turning off the heating over the weekend. It just shows you what can be achieved if the will is there.
