Turn off your computer when you leave your desk

You can help reduce energy consumption. Leaving your computer on at night emits as much CO2 as a truck driving for 1 km*.
If you care about the environment, save energy.

Electricity that is consumed by appliances left on standby mode has a huge environmental impact, because the energy that is used is still, at least in part, generated by fossil fuels. UniTrento encourages energy saving practices to reduce its impact on the environment. Your help is crucial to achieve this goal!
