How The Role Of A Carbon Consultant Will Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Apr 18, 2008
Carbon footprint is a subject that has affected almost everyone in the UK. The level of carbon footprint released by an individual is measured almost obsessively with many companies changing the way they use their equipments and replacing much of their energy-sourced facilities. Many establishments do not know how to reduce their carbon emissions and often seek assistance from carbon consultants.

The role of carbon consultants stems from the concern of carbon foot printing, which has now become a cause for concern in homes and businesses. Becoming energy efficient is now a vital part of running a successful business, with many IT firms now opting towards reducing their carbon footprint. External agencies that specialise in this field focus on finding ways of helping a business run smoothly whilst becoming more energy efficient and without compromising the performance of the company.

Companies that approach carbon consultants are able to determine where they are using the most energy and where this needs to be reduced. These are usually done by taking sight surveys, this normally takes a few days identifying and quantifying the amount of carbon emission. At the end of the few days, the company is presented with a report of the measured carbon emissions, which will indicate what steps to take to reduce this. Calculating your carbon emissions is just the first step. Taking the initial steps to improving this is something that requires dedication.

Many companies find that the smallest pieces of equipment can consume a lot of energy. The main concerns for energy consumption is the number of computers used in an office and the amount of heat needed for a building. Once a company has undergone a survey of this kind, it can often be very difficult to change the way the office is running. Cutting down carbon emission could mean replacing equipment and changing computer equipment. This is a necessary task in order to maintain an energy efficient business.

The best way to instigate these new dimensions is to start slow and focus on one aspect of where it may use too much energy, reducing that down and then allowing time to adjust into this new system. The heating system is just one of the first things to look into as many people are accustomed to radiant heating rather than electric or underfloor heating. Radiator heaters produce a lot of heat but are also high on wasting heat, as this is stored further up in the ceiling rather than below where it is needed. Finding alternative ways of conserving heat may save you money and energy, without the fear of wasting energy.

A carbon consultant will ensure that you reduce your energy use in the right places, saving you money and improving your business prospects through your initiative to keep the company energy efficient.
