The university is committed to regulating the total electricity consumption, water, paper and fossil fuels to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by reducing consumption. Moreover, the university is planning to rely on clean energy sources such as solar energy to provide affordable electricity to its facilities.

This chapter 3 declares:
The use and trade of fuel is subject to the specified specifications in accordance with Article 11 of this law and to the provisions of Law 341/2001 (reducing air pollution resulting from the transport sector and encouraging the trend towards the use of less polluting fuels) and its amendments.
Counting emissions from fuel trading (1-23): Emissions resulting from fuel storage operations must remain below the limit values for emissions from stationary sources stipulated in Article 9 of this law.
The environmental conditions, including preventive measures, that must be adhered to when loading, transporting, unloading or storing fuel, are determined by a joint decision issued by the Minister of Environment and the Minister of Energy and Water so that the emissions do not exceed the limit values of emissions from the fixed sources referred to in Article 9 of this law.
