We hope you had a good start to the beginning of the new academic term. In this month's blog we will be sharing ways you can get involved with our team and sharing our tips on how to keep warm at work as we are now into the colder months.
Sustainable Essex for 2023-24 is now open, has your team registered? We have three awards; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Bronze will remain a specific set of actions, Silver is to create a sustainability action plan/policy for your team, while Gold is about focusing on a project that you have completed to embed sustainability within your team.
There are also specific awards for Cleaning and Portering teams. All this information can be found on our Moodle page.
Please let us know your team name and what award you are going for. You can submit your awards at anytime, we will then audit them and let you know what you achieved. To keep you updated we will be organising an awards event in the summer term, however the date is yet to be decided. We will invite you and your team via email nearer the time.
As we are in November the heating on campus is now on. We want to share with you how to keep warm whilst you are working on campus.
Heating requires energy. Although saving energy might not be your biggest priority whilst you are at work, but everyone can do their bit to save our planets resources.
To help us save energy:
We want to know what other areas of the university are doing in terms of sustainability. We would like to create a catalogue of sustainability stories from departments to showcase your hard work in embedding sustainability in your areas. If you have anything in mind please reach out to us as we would love to hear from you.
If you have any questions about sustainability please email us.
We have a dedicated team, in a broad range of roles, contributing to sustainable development across our campuses. We are committed to the promotion of sustainability to a variety of stakeholders, to conserve the local environment for our students, staff, the wider community and our resident wildlife.
