Staff at Newcastle International Airport have outdone objectives that had been put in place to reduce their energy usage, allowing them to minimize their carbon footprint by 5%.
Under the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, the airport has to report each year on its emissions and airport companies are hoping that the savings they have chose to make this year will place them highly on the league table of energy efficient companies to be released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change towards the end of the year.
The airport brought in several actions to reduce its emissions such as investing in energy efficiency equipment, keeping workshops to encourage staff to lower their energy usage and monitoring energy use on location.
Businesses of any size can be helped by environmental consultancy services like those provided by Apollo Enviro. Despite the fact that smaller companies are not needed to report on their emissions, all businesses can cut their carbon footprint and do their part for the environment, in addition to possibly even saving money on their energy costs.
