Arcada has 476 solar panels on the roof. We have invested in producing our own energy, which is important for the environment and sustainable development. If you want to check the production in figures, there is a solar panel meter on the large board at the Big square and Fazer Food&Co.
Last week, the Green Office released its annual report for 2018, which is a summary of all Green Office members' reports. We who have Green Office certificates (Arcada since 2011) have been good at saving heat, electricity, water and paper consumption. Compared to the previous year, carbon dioxide emissions decreased by 10,275 tonnes. The share of green electricity has increased noticeably, from 57% to 76%.
However, we could be better at avoiding flights, emissions increased by 11% from 2017 to 2018.
