Changing for good
Our project was a positive impact initiative to contribute towards building a sustainable university. We focused on reducing our energy, water, and waste consumption, while promoting collaboration and awareness of sustainability across the University. We wanted to make a significant environmental improvement in line with the University’s principles and therefore took an innovative approach by hiring a new student employee to work with the University stakeholders to implement a range of initiatives, all with the aim of demonstrating our commitment to the SDGs.
It was an ambitious programme that required input from all areas of the catering team such as reducing our energy consumption in the kitchens, helping with re-launching the University’s growing spaces, and achieving a number of accreditations like the Green Kitchen Standard. Momentum built around this project in the first year and this has now become an ongoing programme with Aramark and the University.
