1. The resource efficiency issue that has been identified is that of the excess use of pollutants that may lead to greenhouse gas emissions. The reason behind this being an issue is that excess amount of pollutants may cause the formation of carbon dioxide, which can be fatal for living creatures across the world.
The cause of the issue is that excess pollution arising from vehicles and smokes from kitchen cooking causes the degradation of environment and the rise of carbon dioxide. The fuel used in the daily activities causes problems in the sustainability of the environment.
The list of the resources that have been measured includes the excess use of office equipments, dishwashers and washing machines along with compact fluorescent light bulb. At the same time, other resource includes reduced paper usage.
The method and technology that can be used is a CitySwitch Waste Assessment Tool, which can provide a snapshot of the things that are put in the dustbin.
The result that has been obtained over the one-week period is that resources need to be protected and conserved by applying techniques and tools that can help in conserving resources.
1. The improvements that can be made for ensuring that the pollution is controlled is that the kitchen appliances need to be based on the manner in which sustainability can be obtained. One such method that can be used is the application of tools such as the CitySwitch Waste Assessment. This particular tool can be used to examine any item that is put in a trashcan so that effective waste of the resources can be reduced. In the kitchen, it is always necessary to switch off the appliances although most appliances are used on a daily basis as well as for preparing various types of food items. Hence, it is necessary to make a schedule of the dishes that need to be cooked and based on the schedule use of appliances can be made. This can help in reducing the negative effect of excess resources used. At the same time, it can be said that the conservation of natural resources can be made by analysing the environment around the work area.
Therefore, an outline can be made about the manner in which changes can be provided to the working practise that exists in the kitchen. One such change that can be brought about is that every employee needs to be provided with the training about switching off the appliances after it has been used. These changes can help in providing an understanding of the factors that is required fo
maintaining sustainability and at the same time, promote the importance of sustainability. The kitchen need to ensure that excess waste such as paper or excess food is not left behind, as these are important components that promote harmful pollutants in the environment. Therefore, it can be said that in order to in order to ensure that the changes be made effectively the owner of the kitchen need to talk with the head chef and the employees so that they can be encouraged to maintain sustainability.
