19. Minimise carbon footprint

Climate change caused by the build up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is one of the biggest threats facing all ecosystems. The carbon footprint of all activities on the land should be minimised.

Electricity use in buildings should be reduced as much as possible. Buildings should be insulated as efficiently as possible. Fuel consumption of vehicles should be minimised. Staff, visitors and volunteers should be encouraged to car-share or use public transport where possible.
