Meet Univ’s Sustainability Committee
Univ has established a Sustainability Committee to report on and push forward the College’s sustainability efforts.
One of the initial aims of the committee is to capture, in one place, the sustainability work already taking place across the College and publish a sustainability report. The scope of the committee extends from the energy use to the wider impact of College activities in areas such as catering, waste disposal, and the College’s gardens. The committee also recognises the importance of communication and education to promote sustainable practices amongst both staff and students.
The establishment of Univ’s Sustainability Committee comes as the University sets a target of net zero carbon and a net gain in biodiversity by 2035 (read more about that here). Therefore, another major aim of the committee is to join in with and progress University-wide efforts to become more sustainable.
