Having achieved the Bronze Award in the NUS’ Green Impact programme for 2015/16, the School of Applied Computing’s Green Team (Gaynor Thomas, Sue Maw and Sue Williams) were awarded with their certificate in a recognition ceremony this morning in the Round Reading Room in the Alex Building.
A variety of teams from UWTSD’s Swansea campuses attended the Swansea event, which applauded good practice and innovation in sustainability across the University.
Green Impact is an initiative which aims to raise awareness of sustainability issues in the working environment. To reach Bronze level, the SoAC Green Team have worked hard over past months introducing a range of measures to reduce waste and encourage recycling, including the introduction of collection points for used batteries, Tassimo pods, ink cartridges and postage stamps.
SoAC’s Green Team don’t intend to rest on their laurels, though; already preparing new ideas and initiatives for the 2016/17 campaign which launches in early August, they’re aiming to achieve at least Silver Level in the next academic year.
