Sustainable Campus

Colleague Action

Colleague action

Join us in practising and promoting sustainability across our campus.

In light of the climate emergency, action needs to happen across every level of the University. We all need to do our bit for the place in which we live and work.

Colleague induction

If you're a new staff member, find out more about sustainability by attending a Staff Welcome Event.

The Welcome events provide an overview of the University's functions and objectives. They are presented by the Vice-Chancellor or Pro Vice-Chancellor (in absence of the VC).

Sustainability progress is an integral feature of the presentation at these events. Members of the Sustainability Team attend or upload virtual content each even to give more information. You can view the Staff Welcome Event Presentation from the last event (the sustainability content being on slides 18, 21, 22 and 28) and book your place at the Staff Induction Pages (University login required).

The Sustainability Team is also part of the Induction Coordinators Network from People Services, in which we add sustainability induction material to departmental induction programs and are working on developing further induction materials suitable for all colleagues to work through when they join us.

Engagement Plan: Sustainable Campus. Students talking with each other.

Action 2030

Action 2030 is a way to is a way to learn more about and take action on sustainability by joining a community of like-minded people, spreading the sustainability message into your part of the University and doing more good things collectively to have a big impact!

2030 is our net-zero carbon dioxide emissions target year, and all colleagues at the University can get involved in achieving targets like these.

Action 2020 is currently on hold while we improve the scheme.
