Sustainability have a brand new website
We're pleased to announce that the Sustainability department has a newly redeveloped website
. It will give us a better platform to communicate with our staff, students and the public. Unfortunately there are limitations with the software, so please let us know
if you're having trouble finding information, or if you have any suggestions for additional material. It's not complete just yet, and we are working on including more resources, guidance and case studies. We now have:
- a Sustainable Labs Network - this provides a collaborative platform within the University for students and staff to share ideas and resources, and ask questions. You can find out who's currentlyin the network on the website. We will also be holding meetings to discuss how we can further collaborate across the University.
- a lab assessment questionnaire - although we can come and assess your lab for you, you can also have a go yourself. You will be entered into a prize draw if you fill in our lab assessment before September 30th.
- a section to showcase your successes. We know a lot of you have been concerned with the direct, local environmental impact of your research, and have been doing something about it for a long time. We're interested to find out what you've been up to because it can help us coordinate University-wide initiatives and give us new ideas.
- some online guidance about our equipment initiatives: drying cabinets and ultralow temperature (ULT) freezers. We encourage you to get in touch before purchasing new equipment, as we might be able to advise on more sustainable solutions, or offer financial assistance.
