ENERGY GUIDE TO BE LAUNCHED ON APRIL 12

The Prime Minister, Mr Bob Hawke, will officially launch the consumer household hint booklet, the "Energy Guide" on April 12, the Minister for Resources, Mr Alan Griffiths announced today.

Mr Griffiths made the announcement during an opening speech to a workshop organised by Greenhouse Action Australia in Melbourne.

Throughout the speech, the Minister highlighted the need for both household and industry consumers to take responsibility for short term measures which would have an immediate effect \

on greenhouse gas emissions.

"The energy guide is an intensive educational exercise. It shows how to save energy, save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions without any loss of quality of life," Mr Griffiths said.

The Energy Guide will be distributed to every Australian household this month.

"If every Australian follows the hints contained in the book, we could reduce our annual output of carbon dioxide by a

massive 36 million tonnes each year," Mr Griffiths said,

"The book is a first for Australia, and recognises us as world leaders in educational campaigns to reduce greenhouse emissions."
