Crime Is A Green Issue

Secured by Design is the UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of "designing out crime" by use of effective crime prevention and security standards for a range of applications. New and previously unpublished research released by Secured by Design has highlighted for the first time that Crime is a green issue:

  • Reported crime and the loss and damage associated with crime in England & Wales equates to a staggering 5.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year - with un-recorded crime taking this to over 6.5m tonnes!
  • With 5.6m tonnes attributable to the consequence of crime (e.g. car journeys taken for fear of travelling on public transport, house moves because of crime suffered or perceived) the overall total carbon cost of crime equals more than 12.5m tonnes of CO2.
    That total roughly equates to 2% of the UKs total CO2 output.
  • The CO2 produced by UK crime is greater than the entire output of many emerging world economies, including Ecuador, Zambia and Armenia.
  • To put things into context- 1 tree growing for 100 years absorbs only one tonne of CO2 over its lifetime.

What part does Secured by Design play in cutting CO2 emissions?

Secured by Design is the UK police flagship initiative supporting the principles of designing out crime and crime prevention.
Previous research conducted by SBD has proven that SBD developments are half as likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage.
