EURONET 50/50 project has been working during three years (2009-2012) to engage schools in a 50/50 NETWORK around Europe with the aim to save energy reduce CO2 emissions and tackle climate change. With 50/50 everybody wins: the school has an incentive to save energy getting more money for its activities, the facility managers (eg. city councils) have less energy costs and overall there are less CO2 emissions released to the planet.
58 schools have been involved implementing 50/50 methodology and have achieved these results (2011):
- 6900 pupils, teachers, caretakers and 43 city councils working together tackling for climate change
- 40 (70%) schools have achieved energy savings.
- 339 t less of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere!
- More than 1.100 MWh not used!!2.100 € saved per school!!!
The 50/50 NETWORK is growing everyday with new schools joining (193) and benefiting from the feedback with Euronet 50/50 experienced schools. Many municipalities are already supporting the schools of the network. You can become one of them, taking the lead towards a more sustainable energy use around Europe!
