Slide 3

How do items have environmental change affect? Vitality expected to fabricate item Energy expended utilizing item GHGs discharged by item amid utilize End-of-life GHG emanations when item is landfilled, burned, reused

Slide 4

Transportation Sector = Largest GHG Emitter Accounts for ~1/3 of all CO2 outflows across the nation Source: Energy Information Administration,

Slide 5

Sustainable Bus Fleets

Slide 6

Sustainable Biofuels? Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels is building up a universal standard: Key model: Sustainable biofuels diminish GHGs (measured utilizing steady criteria)

Slide 7

Slow Transport Transportation by ship is most proficient Rail Freight is a nearby second Road Transport: 4X more CO2 than Rail) Air Freight is most exceedingly bad : 6X more CO2 than street; 30X > rail

Slide 8

Local Purchasing Win Reduces GHG outflows in the vehicle division Strengthens neighborhood economy by making "green" neckline employments and expanding charge income

Slide 9

Facility Energy Use Buildings represent: • 70% of power utilization • 39% of vitality utilize and carbon dioxide (CO2) discharges Source: US Department of Energy;

Slide 10

Energy-Efficient Lamps and Ballasts Reduce mercury from power plants Decrease # of lights expected to light spaces Specify "Super T8s" (SPX, XPS, High-lumen), T5s and "additional effective" counterweights Set least effectiveness (lumens/watt) CRI (80+) Eliminate wasteful lights, balances & installations from contracts (T12, mercury vapor, roundabout T9s)

Slide 11

LEDs Exit signs Traffic signals Parking parcel lights Hallway lighting Elevator lights Replacements for stick based CFLs Task and track lighting Underwater lighting for pools Pathway lighting (open air lighting) Holiday lighting

Slide 12

Exit Signs Incandescent lights Inefficient: use around 40 watts Bulbs last around 3000 hours (~4-6 months) Fluorescent lights More productive than radiant (5-15 watts) Contain mercury (5-30 mg) Bulbs last around 7,500 - 10,000 hours (9-12 months) LEDs Even more productive (<1-5 watts) Bulbs last up to 100,000 hours (up to 10 years) Self-luminescent Use no vitality

Slide 13

ENERGY STAR-evaluated Products List Appliances : washers, dishwashers, iceboxes, and so on. Warming and cooling hardware : heaters, boilers, ventilation systems, fans, and so on. Lighting gear : smaller fluorescent lights, installations, leave signs, activity signals, and so forth. Office gear : PCs, copiers, printers, and so on. Hardware : phones, TVs, DVD players, and so forth. Various : sustenance benefit hardware, candy machines, windows, and so forth

Slide 14

Federal Energy Management Program US Dept of Energy\'s FEMP runs an Energy Efficient Products Program to help buyers distinguish and figure the life-cycle expenses of very effective vitality utilizing items, including: HVAC equipment  Appliances Windows  Roofing Electric motors  Lighting advancements Office equipment  Water-utilizing gadgets See:

Slide 15

Appliances Assumptions: 1 unit every, power rate $0.09/kWh, water rate $4.158/1000 lady, gas rate $1.1/therm Data in view of ENERGY STAR number crunchers from

Slide 16

EPEAT E lectronic P roduct E nvironmental A ssessment T ool Environmental determinations for PCs: 23 required and 28 discretionary criteria crosswise over 8 classifications Meet gauges for ENERGY STAR (required) Renewable vitality embellishment accessible (discretionary)

Slide 17

scanner copier fax in with no reservations one printer versus Printers, Copiers, Scanners & Faxes ENERGY STAR models utilize ~1/2 vitality of standard models EPEAT imaging gear standard being developed Order with duplex capacity and system proficient (rather than individual machines) Purchase All-in-One units when conceivable A solitary ENERGY STAR multi-work gadget will decrease ~320 pounds of CO2 more than 6 years

Slide 18

Renewable Energy Procurement Decisions Type: Solar, wind, biomass, hydro, and so on. On location versus offsite era Small scale versus extensive scale

Slide 20

Water & Energy Linked Water-related vitality utilize devours 19% of California\'s power, 30% of its normal gas "The country\'s water & vitality utilize are inseparably weaved. Vitality is expected to pump, treat, transport, warmth, cool, and reuse water." (California Energy Commission) Running high temp water for 5 minutes = 60 watt globule for 14 hours Water preservation spares vitality at ~60% of cost of vitality protection Source: California Energy Commission,

Slide 21

Water Sense Label Third-party tried and meet EPA\'s proficiency determinations WaterSense accreditations exist or are being developed for the accompanying item classifications: Bathroom sink fixtures (confirmed for productivity and satisfactory stream) Landscaping water system administrations (affirms experts) New homes Showerheads (being developed) Toilets (guaranteed for execution and effectiveness) Urinals (being developed) Weather-or sensor-based water system control advancements (Source:

Slide 22

GHGs from Food Production Systems What makes a difference most is the means by which nourishment is created 83% of GHG emanations are generation related Methane from hamburger and dairy generation 11% from t ransportation

Slide 23

Reducing Municipal "Foodprint" Change practices of cafeterias, concessions, candy machines, unique occasions, other sustenance benefit operations Purchase less red meat and dairy; increment chicken, pork, fish, eggs and veggie proteins Buy natural and additionally reasonably developed sustenance Buy nearby, regular, new, natural nourishment; maintain a strategic distance from air freighted nourishment Reduce filtered water and other bundled merchandise Reduce nourishment squander; compost at whatever point conceivable

Slide 24

Paper Calculator

Slide 25

EPA\'s Recycled Content (ReCon) Tool Calculates vitality advantages and GHG outflows diminishments from buying items with reused content Available both as an online number cruncher and Microsoft Excel spreadsheet

Slide 26

Metric for Recycled Plastic One ton of CO 2 equal is disposed of when buying: 4 hexagon-molded reused plastic seats (98% postconsumer squander) 15 reused plastic stop seats with backs (98% postconsumer) 100 reused plastic, 96-gallon wheeled yard squander trucks (25% postconsumer )
