A Decalogue For Sustainability
01 remember not to leave unused computer routers or peripherals uselessly switched on( especially during the night): in this way you could save several kg of co2 emissions as well as a few dozen euro of electric energy in a year!
02 switch off completely your computer and the peripherals while you’re not working
03 choose low energy consumption displays : consult the Greenpeace Guide to greener electronics.
04 if you use a laptop, buy an energy saving power supply
05 choose an energy saving lamp for your workspace.
06 do not print your text files.
07 when printing is inevitable, try to select the “economic” print option and print on both sides
08 bo not buy food products online, but instead go to the local farm market next to you (so that you will be sure to buy organic and zero km products).
09 surf the web to find web sites that could help you to become aware of the environmental issues and to find out different solutions for reducing environmental impacts. Visit Rete Clima® website, where you could find news on sustainability and climate change and where you could calculate the co2 emissions of your activities and life style and compensate for them.
