Protecting our climate: you can play your part

Energy

  • Avoid wasting energy at home. Remember to turn off the light whenever you leave a room.
  • Avoid leaving electrical devices or chargers on standby. Pull the plug out from the mains or switch off the power strip when not in use.
  • In winter, you don't need to walk around your apartment in a t-shirt. Turning down the radiator a notch and putting on a cosy sweater can save you money on your heating bill.
  • Always buy energy efficient appliances. When buying new electrical appliances always check the energy rating label to find a unit with low energy consumption.

Travel

  • For shorter distances, the best way to get to your destination is to walk or hop on your bike. Another alternative is public transport.
  • For long distances, take the train. Almost a quarter of the CO2 consumption in Germany is generated by motor vehicles. 

Shopping

  • Buy organic products whenever possible. Organic products tend to have a better carbon footprint than conventionally grown foods. 
  • Buy locally sourced produce. Shorter transport distances mean a significant reduction in fossil fuel use.
  • Opt for seasonal products. Buying seasonal products can reduce the need for long-term storage and refrigeration. 
  • Eat less meat and dairy products. Beef and milk production has a particularly harmful effect on the environment. 
  • Buy high-quality products that can be used for long time. Don't throw your old clothes and electrical equipment away. Instead give away, sell or recycle them.
