You need to have Flash Player 10 or above installed to view this video
Our individual actions almost always result in carbon emissions, but some activities emit more greenhouse gases than others. Sometimes it’s easy to judge which activities result in fewer emissions, but others can be harder to spot.
Philip Sellwood is the Chief Executive of the Energy Saving Trust. He says the main focus of the trust’s role is ‘encouraging people to make their home energy efficient through the use of new and existing technologies and to help them understand the impact of their personal transport’.
Working throughout the UK, Philip sees his biggest challenge to be ‘persuading people that they as individuals really can make a difference in helping the UK become more sustainable’.
His role has seen him offer advice to various people across the UK, including the Prince of Wales on the use of sheep’s wool for insulation in his eco-development in Dorset.
