                   – We can all reduce our carbon footprint in our use of IT:
                    1. Turn off lights, monitors, and systems not in use such as overnight
                                  or at lunch – be particularly aware on hot days
                     2. Place transformer “bricks” on power strips with on/off switches
                            and turn them off when not powering a connected device
                                     3. Inventory equipment and circuits
                                   – consolidate and remove what’s not needed
                       4. Upgrade older equipment with more energy efficient options
                                        – total cost of ownership may be less
                                  5. Use collaboration tools – look for ways
                                           to avoid trips that release CO2
