Did you know that nearly 10% of ALL Energy consumption in Australia is consumed by appliances in standby mode?
Commit to reducing your emissions and you could win some FANTASTIC prizes!
How often do you think about your carbon footprint?
How often do you wonder whether you can make a difference?
At ANUgreen we have worked out that:
And that all adds up to 10% of our consumption (excluding transport).
- If all staff and postgraduate turned off their monitors when they were not at their computers, we could save 1,000 tonnes of CO2
- If all staff and postgraduates turned off their computers overnight (check with your IT staff that this is possible), we could save 5,000 tonnes of CO2
- If all the office lights were turned off during non-working hours we could save 2,500 tonnes of CO2
- If 25% of people who currently drive to the ANU decided to carpool, we could save 5,000 tonnes of CO2
How hard is that?
If all the actions above were implemented, we could save 10% of our current energy consumption (not including carbon emitted through transportation).
