blue planet 2 fish plastic 2If you didn’t watch David Attenborough’s Blue Planet, you’ll have heard about it on the grapevine/subsequent TV programmes/social media etc. Blue Planet certainly exploded and it was images like this one that got us all talking. It got your Average Joe considering how he could be more like the Great Sir David and do their bit to help the planet whether is grabbing your reusable coffee cup when you pop to your Costa (other coffee shops are available) or popping on that extra layer when you’re at work rather than leaving the engine running to keep you warm. This week’s toolbox talk is about about energy and water efficiency which needs to be a topic at the forefront of our minds when we work in an industry that it responding to the need for more housing and community buildings for the increasing population not just in the UK but all over the world. In India, for example, the population is estimated to reach 1400million by 2026, yet they are already experiencing a housing shortage. Closer to home in the UK, it is estimated that 340,000 new homes need to be built each year until 2031 to cope with the demand, so let’s ensure our resource usage is planned carefully so we don’t make an even bigger dent in our carbon footprint.
