A really quick, easy, and simple way to help us reach our Green Impact goals is to add an eco-friendly message to your outlook signature. In fact, one of the criteria for the bronze award states that ‘the department/school promotes environmentally-friendly behaviour in email footers’. This is about promoting eco-conscious behaviour – only printing documents when necessary, remembering to switch off your monitor when away from your computer – but it is also about showing that a commitment to a sustainable environment is something we all share.
An easy-to-follow guide to changing your outlook signature can be found here, and here are some ideas for green emails footers:
Please consider the environment – do not print this email unless absolutely necessary!
Think Green – please turn off the lights when leaving a room
Reduce re‐use, recycle – please be waste aware
Could you walk or cycle to work? Save money, get fit and help the environment!
Off to a meeting? Please turn off your monitor while you are gone.
Save energy, save money, save the planet – please switch off all unnecessary electrical items.
