Fighting climate change and reducing our carbon emissions will need everyone – businesses, community groups, government and individuals – to take action. BEN is committed to helping our network, and Bristol’s citizens, take action on meeting net zero targets by making little changes in our everyday lives that make a big difference to our city.
Bristol Energy Network proposes an Energy Pledge-to-Action project where people make carbon reduction “pledges” based on their lifestyles and preferences, and are supported by the BEN team and our member organisations, to turn pledge/s into real tangible actions with measurable positive outcomes.
From analysis of our previous paper pledges we calculated that the average Bristol House could save 151kg of CO2e per year by switching to LED light bulbs. If everyone in Bristol did the same it would save 28.69 kT of CO2e per year, that’s a saving of almost 5% of the whole city’s annual carbon emissions– just from switching your light bulbs!
But people need support, information, and encouragement and that is what BEN can provide.
We are partnering with the fantastic carbon calculator Giki Zero (Get informed know your impact) where you will be able to make your pledge and see the difference it can make.
So sign up here and join the BEN Team tackling Climate Change from our very own Bristol.
