How much energy and carbon dioxide can we save?

Every initiative makes a difference...and when we add them together we can make a huge contribution to saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions:

  • A computer left on overnight for a year creates enough carbon dioxide to fill a double-decker bus.
  • A photocopier left on standby overnight wastes enough energy to make 30 cups of tea.
  • Air conditioning an office for 1 extra hour a day wastes enough energy in a month to power a TV for over a year.
  • The energy wasted from a compressed air leak the size of a match head is responsible for yearly carbon dioxide emissions equal to the weight of an elephant.
