5 Yale's Sustainability Strategic Plan sets a campus-wide goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 10% below 1990 levels by 2020, a 43% reduction from 2005 levels. Energy Energy Greenhouse Gas Emissions Next Slide Home Home

6 Next Slide Energy Energy Computers Home Home Back Back To reduce energy use, please turn off your monitor when you leave the office. Setting your monitor to sleep, hibernation, or screen saver saves far less energy than turning off the power completely. Have updates set to occur during work hours (rather than at night), so that you can turn off your computer when you leave work. Plug your computer and peripheral devices like chargers, printers, speakers, and scanners into a power strip, and turn it off when you leave the office for the day. These devices are using power (aka phantom load) even when they are in stand- by mode! For help configuring your settings, please contact James Hackett. James Hackett

12 Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) Next Slide Energy Energy Using compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) uses up to 75% less energy and can last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent lighting. CFLs cost more money up front to purchase, but save money over time because they use less energy and need to be replaced less frequently. In fact, changing one bulb to CFL will save you $50 over the lifetime of the bulb. CFLs contain a small amount of mercury, which is essential to the light bulb’s efficiency but is dangerous to you and the environment if the bulb breaks. Be sure to follow these safety precautions in the event a CFL breaks. Contact Facilities for additional support. safety precautions Because of the mercury content, do not dispose of CFLs in the trash or recycling.

23 Waste Management Waste Management If you stacked all the reams of paper consumed by Yale in one year, the stack would reach 30,415 ft. That’s taller than Mount Everest! The Strategic Plan goal is to reduce paper purchases by 10% below 2013 levels by June By reaching this goal we would save approximately 3,500 trees, equivalent to a forest area twice the size of Old Campus.

24 Waste Management Waste Management Tips to reduce paper consumption: Use electronic communication instead of circulating paper, when appropriate. Use and reuse interoffice envelopes in place of regular envelopes, when possible. Print double-sided if allowed (duplex setting). Print 2-up if allowed (two reduced sized pages per sheet of paper). Read on-screen instead of printing a hard copy. Contact your IT Support Provider if you would like assistance with setting your printing default options.IT Support Provider Take advantage of Yale’s Junk Mail Program to reduce your unwanted mail. For any periodicals or mailings you do not wish to receive, follow the procedures as outlined by the Yale Mail Service and you will be removed from the appropriate mailing lists.Yale’s Junk Mail Program Next Slide Home Home Back Back

35 Next Slide Furniture and Equipment Procurement Procurement If new furniture is necessary, new purchases should meet green products standards such as Cradle to Cradle or Indoor Advantage, as specified in Yale’s Sustainable Procurement Standards. When buying new computers or other office machines, Yale recommends purchasing ENERGY STAR or EPEAT rated electronics, which have lower energy requirements than conventional models. Before buying new office furniture, first check out Yale’s Eli Surplus Exchange to see if you can find used furniture that will meet your needs. You can also donate or sell furniture (and other items as well). For other ways to reuse visit Yale Recycling web site here.Eli Surplus Exchange here Home Home Back Back

A Yale shuttle stop is located just outside the Rose Center and provides campus shuttle service as well as connection to New Haven’s CT Transit. Using video or teleconferencing instead of traveling to in-person meetings, when appropriate, saves time, money, and reduces vehicle emissions. Home Home

41 Next Slide Kitchen & Shared Areas Water Conservation Consider these facts: According to PBS, the energy we waste using bottled water in the U.S. each year would be enough to power 190,000 homes, and energy use per bottle is equivalent to filling a plastic bottle 1/4 full of oil. Rather than using bottled water, you can help the environment by drinking filtered tap water or using a water fountain. Please use a reusable water container instead of a disposable cup when possible; If you have visitors, lend one of your own cups instead of wasting a paper cup. Home Home Back Back

43 Next Slide Green Cleaning at Yale Kitchen & Shared Areas Yale’s Green Cleaning Program incorporates environmentally benign cleaning products with appropriate equipment, tools, and procedures that limit environmental and human health impacts. The green cleaning program embraces the cleaning process in its entirety and includes an emphasis on education and training of workers. Whenever possible, Yale uses Green Seal certified or Green Seal recommended products. If such a product is not available, Yale selects a product that is environmentally friendly and safe, as determined by Yale Environmental Health and Safety. Yale continually strives to improve the health and safety of its students and workers while simultaneously reducing its environmental impact.
