Think green: save energy

5th week Switch off campaign image for blogSSL staff are currently working towards the Green Impact Silver Award for 2015/16, having achieved Bronze and Best Newcomer awards in 2014/15. Electricity use is one of the library’s main environmental impacts. We have been saving electricity by:

  • Setting the photocopiers to enter sleep mode after 15 minutes’ inactivity
  • Switching off half the photocopiers in vacation
  • Enabling the power saving options on staff PCs

You can help the SSL save energy and reduce CO2 emissions by:

  • Switching off laptops and mobile devices when not in use
  • Unplugging chargers when devices are fully charged or disconnected
  • Enabling power saving settings on laptops
  • Switching off the Reader PC monitors after use
  • Turning off the lights in the Discussion Rooms and Graduate Study Rooms when leaving
  • Telling us your energy saving tips!  Email or talk to library staff.
