Orcas double-breaching off the south side of Unimak Island Dusky dolphins off Kaikoura A breach or a lunge is a leap out of the water, also known as cresting. The distinction between the two is fairly arbitrary:
One word — excellent! We have been very impressed with the level of focus and detail you have applied, as well as your strategic planning. We are looking forward to continuing to work with you to support our ongoing commitment to reducing our carbon emissions. Label light switches This seems so mundane, but is important for any multiple light switches.
Often people will come in to the office and switch on every light, because no one has really paid any Saving behaviour to which switch operates which lights. By labeling switches with stick-on labels, it becomes clear which lights can be switched off on sunny days or when no-one is working in that area.
An easy win, at no cost. Switch off lights in unoccupied rooms and then install sensors Most offices have store rooms, photocopier rooms, archive stores and kitchens.
The next step is to install occupancy sensors which can be simple wall-plate replacements. Place them properly though. Blinds up — lights off Many offices have the blinds shut all day because of early morning glare.
If you can, open the blinds, let the sun shine in, and switch off the lights. Retrofit lamps if possible There are two easy to fit retrofit solutions for lights which can be done.
The first is LED spotlights in place of 50W tungsten halogen spotlights. The LEDs seem to cost a lot, but the cost and hassle of forever replacing blown lamps will quickly repay the outlay.
Full lighting refits are more expensive than retrofits but can pay back in around 4 years.
Sleepy computers When you go home at night, either switch off, or put your computer to sleep. These easily pay for themselves in energy savings. Make sure all the other office equipment — printers, photocopiers, faxes, display TVs and projectors are set to energy saver mode.
Put simple timers on to make it even easier to switch off overnight and at weekends. Tiny stuff — phone and laptop chargers, desk-lamp transformers can all be switched off when not in use.
Not big but easy to save a few watts of vampire loads. Increase the temperature in the server room Cooling of IT equipment is important to keep it functioning.
However, common practice since the days of flared trousers was to keep it at 18 C all year round. Walk into most server rooms and the chill is apparent. A lot of electricity is used to keep these rooms cool.
The IT equipment is now much more robust than in the s. The recommended range is 18 to 27 degrees C, so a central set-point of New guidelines are expected which allow even higher temperatures for some servers.
Clearly the closer to the top of the temperature range that can be reached, the less energy will be used in chilling plant. Know your heating controls Office heating is often zoned and controlled remotely. Make a plan of the office and mark which thermostats control which zone.
Make sure people know how their thermostats work and which one operates their heating. Get to know your Energy Manager Get friendly with your energy or facilities manager, whoever controls your Building Energy Management System.
Find out the times and set points they have, and see how, together you can shave off a few minutes here and there.
Air conditioning dead-band Make sure your air conditioning is not fighting your heating.Mission Trip to Thailand. Be a part of The Ark missions team to southeast Asia!

Consumers account for more than 60% of final consumption in the OECD area, and can have a major impact on green growth by purchasing products that have desirable environmental properties such as recyclability and energy efficiency, and by modifying their behaviour to support environmental goals.

Webb Many analysts view personal saving behavior, summarized by statistics such as the personal saving rate or household debt acquisition, as a key determinant of real economic activity.
