Certified Organic Agriculture Products in the School Cafeteria
Agriculture is a one of the largest sources of C02 emissions. Mellac contributes to their reduction by using organically farmed products whose carbon footprint is 30% less than that of conventional agriculture. The city reached a weight figure of 26% organic products during the abovementioned period, i.e., nearly five metric tons. Start year 2012

Reduced Natural Gas Consumption
Five municipal buildings are natural-gas heated. The municipal government decided to reduce consumption via the application of a more economical regulating and circulating appliance as well as by double-glazing a previously unequipped room. The reduction reached 12% between 1 September 2011 and 2012, i.e, 55,000 fewer kwh and a ten-metric-ton reduction to greenhouse atmospheric emissions. Start year 2012
