Energy Efficient appliances (star rating)

The use of 5 star appliances in staff tea rooms should be encouraged (and enforced).

I noticed the fridges in the new staff area at the Waterfront campus have about a 3 star rating. I think for a University promoting energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, we should be using 5 star rated fridges.

    I agree. Not just for good for the environment, but the long term energy savings (electricity costs will increase with federal carbon legistlation) are not thought about as well. Did you know that the University has recently started up a Sustainable Procurement Working Group, who will be looking at what mechanisms can be put in place to reduce our enviromental footprint when purchasing goods.

      Thanks for the comment Paula - & no I wasn't aware of the Sustainable Procurement Working Group - but it sounds like a good idea.
