Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
To help achieve the UK target of reducing net emissions of greenhouse gases by 100% relative to 1990 levels by 2050 (a ‘net zero’ emitter), we should all consider how we can reduce our personal carbon footprint. Reducing transport and travel can help, and to achieve this you could consider:
• Talking to your employer about ‘flexible working’, as working from home more regularly can be a brilliant way to cut carbon emissions;
• Asking your employer if they are signed up to the UK Government Cycle to Work scheme; and
• Using home delivery services for your grocery shopping.
If driving remains the only option, here’s six handy tips for being an eco-friendly driver:
1) Service your vehicle and check tyre pressures regularly – A well-serviced car will operate more efficiently. Underinflated tyres can increase a car’s fuel consumption by as much as 6%.
2) Drive smoothly – Assess the road ahead as much as possible to avoid unnecessary braking and acceleration, which both increase the amount of fuel you use. Maintain a suitable distance from the vehicle in front so you can adapt your speed when necessary without using the brakes.
3) Shift up early to a higher gear – Driving at lower revs reduces fuel consumption – don’t labour the engine, but try changing up at a low engine speed.
4) Slow down – Fuel costs increase when you travel faster. Drive at 70mph and you’ll use up to 9% more than at 60mph, and 15% more than 50mpg.
5) Use air conditioning wisely – Using air conditioning can increase fuel consumption by as much as 5%, so try to use the windows where possible.
6) Lighten your load – Removing excess items from your car before travelling can reduce weight and save fuel. (Sources: The Energy Saving Trust, AA, The Telegraph)
