About ENERGY STAR: The University staff have a practice of purchasing the most energy efficient appliances available. When the Energy Star rating is not available, the University receives technical support from our local utility to identify the best choices. We do not track data on this, however, and therefore estimated 90%.

About FSC paper: The expenditures are greater than zero, but our institution does not track this information at this time.
