We're all aware of the little steps we can take to help reduce our own carbon emissions, however, did you know there are small changes you can make in the workplace that you may have never known about... 

On average, 306 billion emails are received DAILY. This equates to driving to the moon 12,000 times!

We have become more reliant on emailing as a way of communicating. But did you know, every email you send emits 4g of carbon! 

• Driving just 20 miles to a face-to-face meeting = 8.08kg of CO2
• 1 hour of computer use = 100g CO2 
• 1 hour zoom call = 12g CO2

In 2019, 53.6 million tonnes of e-waste were produced, but only 17.4% of this was officially documented as collected and recycled.
