Many of our researchers are tackling the global issues of 气候 change and 可持续性 in efforts to be part of the solution. 例如, we have people working on prolonging the life of rechargeable batteries; improving the efficiency of rice crops to meet the food demands of a growing population; and increasing the survival chances of declining species. We are also deeply committed to making local changes within the College community. 例如, we have recently established a Carbon Committee to work on a carbon policy and a series of carbon commitments. We have also worked to receive Fairtrade accreditation, established a working group on food to support environmental 可持续性, and put sustainable considerations at the forefront of a recently commissioned ‘masterplan’ to assess the use of the College’s buildings over the next few years.
学院 was delighted to be awarded Gold in its first year of participating in 绿色的影响. We also won the highly commended best newcomer award and look forward to building on this success.
Any student can become a member of the College's 绿色的影响 team. We work on a number of different areas to improve the College's green credentials. The key areas are listed below:
- Biodiversity and community
- Embedding and communication
2017年11月, the College's Governing Body agreed to use Fairtrade products wherever possible, and to seek accreditation from the Fairtrade Foundation.
