I am Laboratories Service Manager and have been working to integrate sustainability into everyday practice within the labs. I am thankful that these efforts have not gone unnoticed by staff and students alike, and I estimate that I have saved the school at least £320,500 and over 650 tonnes of carbon in the process.
I think my positive can-do attitude and a determination to approach things carefully and communicate clearly has been a key attribute. I believe I have truly gone above and beyond my job requirements. When my time is done at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), my hope is that the systems I’ve setup will remain and continue to save the School energy and instil good practice amongst the thousands of researchers we have passing through our school.
Top 3 learnings:
1. Aligning interest is key to ensuring sustainability isn’t ignored.
2. Setting the example of what you want to see done and working with others.
3. Integrating sustainability so it becomes common practice, and not something separate, thus having a legacy and knock on effect for the institution at large.
CO2t savings 2017/2018: 110 tonnes (Estimated)
