Tower Hill Botanic Gardens
Climate change is a global issue that poses large risks to all life, and energy consumption plays a significant role in this. The goal of this project was to find a way to help Tower Hill Botanic Gardens monitor and manage their environmental impact by assessing their carbon footprint. This was achieved by establishing indicators that are relevant to the institution, developing a tool based on the indicators to assess the facility, and engaging the staff and the public through the results of the tool. We were able to accomplish this goal and estimate Tower Hill's carbon footprint and which sources impact the footprint most. After we measured the footprint of Tower Hill, we provided recommendations for Tower Hill to manage their carbon emissions.
