How to contribute

Environmental and climate protection is the result of many small decisions that cannot all be controlled at a central point.

The bad thing is that everyone has to do something to achieve the best result.

The good thing: Everyone can do something to support the environment!

This is what all university members can do

  • Feedback of improvement ideas for climate protection at the university.

  • In case of damages: report to the Facility Management of the UP (e.g. defective light bulbs, heaters, toilet flushes, etc.): HGP-Service (Intranet!) or under 977 2010
  • Use of public transport & bicycle (repair-stations on campus!)
  • Separate garbage where possible! (Only garbage that is optimally separated by university employees is also disposed of separately by the cleaning staff)
  • Print out and copy as little as possible and use duplex print!
  • Use recycled paper as often as possible, also when color printing!
  • When leaving the rooms: close windows, set heating to 2 and turn off lights!
  • Eat vegetarian or vegan food more often (award-winning Mensa!)
  • Delete not required mails as well as files on the UP-Box (saves server space and thus power for cooling)
  • Sign up as a climate ambassador!
