The School of Applied Computing’s Green Impact Team are delighted to report that SoAC has achieved the Bronze Award under the NUS’ 2016 Green Impact programme.
You’ve probably noticed the Green Impact noticeboard on the third floor – new for this year – as well as collection points set up in the department, where you can drop off your batteries, printer cartridges and stamps for recycling.
Less obvious, perhaps, have been the many other sustainability initiatives that the Team has introduced around the School this academic year. Criteria include wellbeing, procurement policies, travel, communication and embedding and travel.
Keen to build upon their good work, the Team have already started meeting targets for the Silver Green Impact award, and have introduced some flagship initiatives such as the recycling of Tassimo pods (collection points in MH307 and Reception).
This year’s Swansea Awards Ceremony is to be held at 10.30 am on 7th July in the Round Reading Room, Alex Building.
