Following two successful years of the 100 Days of Carbon Clean Up Campaign, The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) is rolling out a new initiative, aimed at enabling companies to prepare themselves for Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and Display Energy Certificates (DECs).
This year the initiative will be challenging UK organisations to pledge 100 hours of staff time to commit to carbon reduction activities. Sign up starts from the 15 August and participants have until the end of November to reach the 100 hours target, with activities and progress logged on a personalised time card via the 100 hours website http://www.100hours.co.uk
In return CIBSE will provide free guidance on preparing for EPCs and DECs, and the tools to encourage monitoring energy use in order to measure & manage it. Learning activities, themed events and eco-freebies will all help to keep participants motivated.
Commenting on the new 100 Hours of Carbon Clean up Campaign, CIBSE President Professor John Swaffield said: "The previous two campaigns have proved the enthusiasm of UK organisations to get involved and cut carbon emissions from their buildings. This time we want to encourage even more firms to sign up and pledge their commitment, and to show that you just need to spend a little time to make a lot of difference."
