Reducing carbon emissions over Christmas

The University of Leeds has made a commitment to reduce carbon emissions by 35% by the year 2020. Please could you help by reducing wasted energy?

Before you leave the University for the Christmas break could you:

  • Turn off any tea point water boilers, electric heaters etc.
  • Turn off computers, chargers, photocopiers, faxes, printers etc.
  • Turn off lights including those in common areas such as toilets.
  • If possible use the break to defrost fridges and freezers.
  • Close all windows and doors.

    If you have any concerns over turning equipment off please contact either Robert Bradley ( or Adele White ( in Estate Services.
