Warwick Green Action
A number of Green Champions are supporting the work of the Environmental Sustainability Team by initiating activities in their own areas through use of the Warwick Green Action project. This project is designed to empower individuals and teams to make positive environmental changes through the provision of a guidance document with ideas for action. Teams are provided with support on various actions from biodiversity to energy, and from communication to procurement. Teams don’t necessarily cover a whole department or building, but cover the area they feel they are able to influence with the time and resources they have available.
The project started in September 2018. During 2018/19, nine teams undertook more than 100 actions, which positively contribute to the environmental performance of the University. More teams are in the process of setting up and the aim is that all departments will have active teams over the coming years.
Some of the actions undertaken include:
- Adding sustainability to agendas at team meetings;
- Reviewing energy consumption data and identifying opportunities for improvement;
- Having and updating a team noticeboard;
- Holding an event as part of Green Week; and
- Not providing disposable cups at meetings.
