When purchasing new appliances, please pay attention not only to the price, but also to the energy efficiency and cost effectiveness. Each time a new appliance is purchased, the operational costs are fixed for the next three to six years.
Always turn monitors, printers and copiers off when they are not in use. This can be done easily with a socket that can be switched off.
Further information about the subject of energy efficiency and environmental management at Freie Universität can be gathered directly from the staff of the Energy and Environment Unit.
