UCC expects all employees to contribute to goals such as reducing depletion and degradation of natural resources, and caring for our campuses.
The College helps to make this goal easily achievable with Recycling Centres at both schools, where people can drop off used cellphones, batteries and inkjet printer cartridges.
Staff can also meet to make recommendations for improvement, such as through bulk purchasing and delivery of office supplies, using e-communications rather than printing out inter-office mail, and specifying reusable and/or recyclable office materials.
In the long term, we hope our employees will realize that sustainability means adopting a new mindset. All our individual actions will combine to define the culture of our College, refashioning it for a sustainable future.
