Home Energy Efficiency

Video Abstract
The purpose of this video is to assess whether a Colgate fund to which community members could apply to receive free or reduced home energy efficiency upgrades would be a viable way to offset Colgate's remaining 5,000 mtCO2e by 2019. There are many different ways that this program can be implemented and we will focus on insulation projects, which are the most effective way to make a home more energy efficient. First, the video will provide an introduction to Colgate's Climate Action Plan and define carbon offsets and their importance to Colgate. Next, the video will discuss the several steps involved in a home upgrade, starting with a home audit, and why insulation is the most effective way to generate carbon offsets. Finally, the video will present data concerning how much money Colgate should invest, how many houses should be insulated, and how much carbon will be saved by 2019. We find that this project offers an excellent opportunity to offset carbon, reduce the community's energy usage, and improve the 'town-gown' relationship.
