Sustainability Champion, University of Warwick

First in a new role at the University of Warwick, David has supported and championed projects, ideas and initiatives to improve the impact the University has on its environment.

In the process, David has aimed to convey a sustainable message to staff, students, visitors and the local community and will continue to work with all stakeholders to better the lives of many.

In his first year, David covered areas of electricity, water, waste, procurement, transport and ecology with an aim of embedding sustainability throughout everyday life at University of Warwick.

To this end, David has helped save over £72,000 and all the CO2 emissions associated with positive behaviour change.
