Our Campus is undergoing a process of re-wilding which includes the planting of additional trees and plants to provide natural habitats for wildlife.
Our Refectory provides recyclable cutlery and containers for take-away use and is encouraging the use of re-fillable containers for water and hot drinks. Our polytunnel is currently being developed to help supply herbs to our College kitchens.
Recycling stations are situated across College for paper, batteries, plastic bottles and drinks cans.
The extended use of digital resources is aimed to reduce the amount of paper the College recycles and recycled paper is used for many College functions.
Energy-saving technology is employed across College to ensure lights and some equipment is turned off when areas are no longer in use.
As part of the College’s commitment to raising awareness of sustainability and damage to the natural environment, it has joined forced with Ocean Revival, a team of four serving and former Royal Marines who are attempting ‘the world’s most dangerous row’ in summer 2021. The College is the official education partner of the elite team who are making the mid-Atlantic crossing to support Plastic Oceans and the Royal Marines Charity, with team members visiting College to talk about the problems of plastic waste in our oceans to students.
