Green home

The Department of Energy tells us that every kilowatt hour of electricity generated in Bermuda pumps 751 grams of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. This amounted to approximately 6.5 metric tons of CO2 per residential customer in 2007 (see the 2009 Energy Green Paper).

Recycling at workOne much-discussed issue in the last few months is how to manage waste. Not theoretical waste – wasted energy, wasted time – or even something more topical like wasted assets, but actual physical waste: bottles, paper, old computers, old food, stuff we are actively trying to get out the door.

Most companies are doing their best to dispose of waste in an environmentally friendly manner. Almost all companies have separate recycling bins. Many companies collect so many used phone books that the resultant stack could almost be a work of art or a feat of engineering. A lot of companies also try to find ways to give away or reuse old computers, monitors and cell phones to abate the embarrassment of electronic superfluity that seems to collect around most of us these days. However, disposing of things in an environmentally friendly way, particularly in Bermuda, is not easy.

Reading the Green PagesGreenrock reflects on one year in The Green Pages.

For Greenrock, the mantra "Changing the Mindset" implies a long-term commitment to the progressive shift toward a more sustainable Bermuda - in the environmental, social, and economic spheres. To do so, it is important to speak directly to the public, with a clear message, about ways to generate meaningful change. Working in partnership with The Royal Gazette's Green Pages has been an opportunity to do just that.


Savings for Seniors helps senior citizens to reduce their electricity bills. The project began in 2013 and was made possible by a generous grant from Catlin End-to-End Bermuda.

Greenrock was formed in 2003, but it truly began its work in the Bermuda community in 2005.  At that time, Greenrock’s constitution was redrafted and a formal structure was developed. Since then, the day-to-day governance of Greenrock has been supervised by a Management Committee. This Committee comprises volunteers with a wide variety of backgrounds.  Each member of the Committee is assigned an area of focus and is encouraged to build their own sub-committees to help execute various tasks.
