London, UK (PRWEB UK) 24 June 2011
Establishing a systematic framework is the key to delivering significant workplace carbon reductions at low cost, according to a new report ‘Cutting workplace carbon, not competitiveness’ by Low Carbon Workplace Ltd.
While all buildings are capable of some level of carbon emissions reduction, to maximise the size and impact of these reductions means carbon needs to be managed out – and kept out – at every step whilst working with stakeholders to sustain the change. The report, available to download at http://www.lowcarbonworkplace.com/CutWorkplaceCarbon.aspx, includes a series of practical tips to help occupiers set up their own workplace carbon management regime.
“Carbon can creep into buildings at every step from design to operation and occupation unless it is systematically managed out by all stakeholders – no easy feat in a siloed industry” says Katharine Deas, Managing Director, Low Carbon Workplace Ltd and the report’s author, “yet sticking resolutely to a programmatic approach can cut workplace carbon significantly, in an enduring way, often at low cost”.

About the “Cutting workplace carbon, not competitiveness” report
The report is based on a speech delivered by Katharine Deas, Managing Director of Low Carbon Workplace Ltd, in March 2011 at the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRCEES) conference run by GovToday, entitled Cutting Carbon without Cutting Frontline Services. Her premise was to talk to those affected by the CRCEES legislation, predominantly public sector representatives; about the ways in which they can apply low-carbon practices to their organisations in their existing offices, saving costs and reducing carbon emissions. A video of her speech is available at http://www.lowcarbonworkplace.com.
