Do the maths for yourself

Improving insulation in buildings not only helps achieving our Kyoto commitments, but also delivers cost savings whilst creating jobs. In the European Union alone, better insulation levels could:

  • Reduce CO2 emissions by 83 million tonnes a year by 2010, rising to 144 million tonnes a year by 2015.
  • Provide cost and energy savings of 8 billion EURO a year by 2010, rising to 14,5 billion EURO a year by 2015.
  • Create the equivalent of up to 530,000 full time jobs.

Adding it up leads to one conclusion:
"IT'S TIME TO ACT AND THE PLACE TO START IS IN BUILDINGS!"
