Applied procedures: The map combines the stock estimates for pastures, mosaic agriculture, forests, dry semi-natural and natural land, wetlands and water bodies. The smoothing radius of 10 km has been used to calculate the extent (%) of these cover types within 10 km of each point (see Section 8.3.1). The resulting density of green surfaces has been mapped as a continuum from high to low.

At the office, encourage your colleagues to re-use the other side of paper and print less by archiving their emails and attachments. You can also try and create paperless habits. Some studies show that office paper consumption is rising by 20 % per year and web-based technology is actually increasing the printing of documents. On average each worker uses about 50 sheets of A4 per day. Must you print?
