Web–Based Environmental Household Bookkeeping System

The households of 317 employees participated in the Web–Based Environmental Household Accounting System. They monitored their household energy–saving activities from July to September 2010 by entering their monthly energy consumption in "Ecocho," a Web–based environmental account book issued by the Ministry of the Environment.

Positive feedback was received from the participating employees, for example, "Awareness of the environment has been increased in my family" and "Our utility charges have decreased due to the change in electricity/water–saving behavior in our family."
