The aim of the project was simply to produce less waste and use less energy in order to improve the ecological footprint of the College. To achieve this, the College aimed to reduce its energy by 50%, greenhouse gas emissions by 20% and work towards a zero-waste College.
The College identified that the main impacts on the environment and its ecological footprint were waste and energy consumption.
Over the period of the project, the College consolidated its waste management contract at all campuses, implemented energy monitoring campaigns, awareness training, and standard tender documentation to include sustainable building techniques, purchased green energy for all campuses, energy efficient systems and the upgrading of services.
