The Group's Sustainability Group is here to address climate change and ecological destruction to meet the UK Government's target to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
We are positively engaging with staff, students, and the community to develop the college’s sustainability agenda. We aim to embed climate responsibility into strategic planning, governance and staff development; this will help us to make changes and improvements on all campuses and in the local area.
Some of the initiatives that the college is delivering and looking to develop further include improved recycling, reduced food wastage, rewilding, greener outdoor spaces, less single use plastic, less print usage, electric vehicle charging options and various energy efficiency initiatives.
We are also looking to reach out to the local community. If you have any ideas or proposals, please get in touch. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sustainability Group developed and distributed a short online survey to students and staff to understand the appetite for action to combat climate change among the DN Colleges Group community and help to build the case for change.
