WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING?
The SU office has moved to a new, more energy efficient building. However, AUBSU is still conscious of the amount of energy that we use. We have tracked the amount of energy we used as part of our sustainability challenge 2016-2018. We found that our useage remains constant at around 5890 KW/H of electricity and 2.08TCO2E (gas).
We ensure that staff are aware of energy use and this is reflected in office life. We are vigilant with switching off lights and PCs when not in use and only using our heater when necessary. We can't do much more than this in-house, as we only have a small office, so we look to reduce our carbon footprint in other ways, such as sustainable travel and going meat-free at meetings.
