Green Pledge Initiative
Alongside the launch of this campaign, we will be launching the Green Pledge initiative, whereby the Students' Union will be launching their green pledge to become more sustainable. From this, we will be lobbying Schools at the University to create and maintain their own Green Pledge. You can suggest ideas to your School via this form.
Here are some examples of pledges that could be made:
- Make it a rule that slide and module handbooks are printed out by request only.
- Do students need to submit a hard copy as well as Turnitin?
- Ban non-recyclable flyers and posters.
- School-wide disposable cup ban or a small charge for a cup to encourage people to bring their own.
- Limit plastic at catered events.
- Reduce your carbon footprint by sending less emails
- Turn lights off
- Use a ‘greener’ search engine
