TfL, the BBC, Natural History Museum all take part in carbon clean up campaign

After just two weeks, CIBSE has signed up over 100 participants in its third annual‘100 hours or Carbon Clean up Campaign.' The signatories now have from now until November 30th to donate 100 staff hours to reducing carbon from their organisations.

The first 100 applicants, which included BBC Wales, TfL, BBC Wales, Natural History Museum, V & A museum, Brent Cross Shopping Centre, some NHS Foundation Trusts and London Fire Authority, were entered into a draw to win one of 25 heavy duty portable energy loggers, SP Minis.

The next 100 applicants will be entered into a draw to win one of 25 free decentralised energy feasibility studies.

At the ‘100 hours’ launch at City Hall last month, the UK’s industry body for SMEs said that small businesses had only failed to take action on EPCs through a general lack of awareness rather than apathy. Nyree Connell took the opportunity to launch the FSB’s guidance on the matter.

560 organisations took part in the 100 hours events in 2006; in 2007 over 700 took 100 hours to reduce carbon.

Participants in the campaign can access:

  • practical guidance to reduce the cost and time involved in preparing for EPCs and DECs, the commercial building energy certificates now required by law
  • checklists of immediate and longer term activities to cut energy bills
  • an extensive list of low and no cost carbon saving activities to choose from no matter what size of the organisation or where you are on the path to carbon reduction
  • access to free workshops and learning modules that qualify as CPD
  • eco-freebies for staff as the organisation achieves key milestones over the campaign period
  • invitations to fun activities that support and motivate your low carbon champions and staff as they contribute to carbon reduction activities
