We are very proud to have just been awarded the NUS Impact Gold Award for our work minimising our carbon footprint and supporting sustainable practices and service development.
This is the fifth year in a row that the library has taken part in the NUS Green Impact scheme, a framework for action that helps us improve the environmental performance of the Library and the University as a whole. This year, the focus was on a different themed area each month, including water, energy, waste and travel. Our green champion, Michele Game, has been busy encouraging all our staff to do their bit, reporting leaking taps, turning off lights at the end of the day, recycling and travelling sustainably to work and meetings rather than jumping in a car.
You can join us and improve the sustainability of the University by reporting any leaking or dripping taps, printing and photocopying double-sided where possible, turning off your computer monitor when you are not using it for long periods, and taking a moment to carefully separate your rubbish into the correct recycling bin sections (black for food, green for packaging, and blue for leftover drink). The University is always striving to reduce its environmental impact, and with your help we can!
