Envirometer Housing Associations
This pages shows the environmental impact of an average office of a housing corporation, translated into graphs and efficiency indicators by the Envirometer.
The pie chart shows the distribution of the environmental impact. The biggest environmental impact consists of commuter traffic and electricity, followed by business traffic and freight transport. Heating, water, waste and office paper are included but have a smaller impact.
The most interesting statistics from the Envirometer for an average housing association office can be found in the table below. After creating your own Envirometer, you can display the averages next to your own results for an easy comparison.
