Umoja House Carbon Footprint

Our team of energy experts provided an estimate of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions arising out of the use of energy at Umoja House in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for the calendar year 2006.

The objective of the study was to give the Joint Management Committee of the Umoja House an indication of what can be done to make the building a ‘carbon neutral workplace’. The assessment was completed based on the guidelines and principles outlined by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the World Resources Institute (WRI) Greenhouse gas protocol. It covered all the activities involving the operation, maintenance and use of the building as per the assessment boundary.

Based on the assessment, the following recommendations were made:

  • Create awareness on the need to conserve energy, in turn there should be a reduction in the electricity consumption
  • Reduce the cooling settings in offices and minimized use of the generator
  • Offset the emissions by investing in activities that reduce CO2 emissions
  • Support tree planting activities for CO2 sequestration
  • Use solar PV for lighting the grounds/perimeter wall or other areas
