Sustainability

A message from your Officers

Hi everyone, I'm Jack Robinson and I'm the Campaigns & Democracy Officer, I'm the lead full-time officer on sustainability, ethical and environmental issues. I coordinate the union's priority campaigns, lead on developing our democracy and look after the commercial services. This year I want to focus on making the SU more sustainable and improve energy efficiency across campus.

Hi, my name is Rhys and I am your elected Environment Officer. The changes we make on our campus should be a reflection of what we would like the world to be, and that idea underpins all the work I do on sustainability. My central focus is how the student union can reduce its waste and incentivise students to make small changes in their lives that can have a big impact. Everything I am doing is fuelled by consultations with students so please get in touch!

Here at uea|su we are dedicated to increasing our sustainability initiatives. This year we have developed a sustainability collective, which brings together all societies that have environmental activism at their core. We plan to collaborate their ideas to influence any future campaigns we run. 

Everything we do is done with the United Nations' sustainable development goals in mind. Our environmental plan is driven by these ideals as we strive to give our students equal opportunities, a sustainable environment and a morally ethical and considerate union. 

 

Last year we received a 'Good' NUS Green Impact accreditation. This year we will be striving for an 'Excellent' accreditation. Not only will this show how much we dedicate towards sustainability, but it will allow us to see where we can improve, and become accountable in those areas.

Future and Involvement

At uea|su we are committed to providing students a sustainable environment to live and work. We aim to be as environmentally conscious in all of our activities, when developing new strategies this is always taken into consideration before anything is implemented.
