Environmental Action Plan

The Department of Land Economy aims to deliver the Environmental Sustainability Vision, Policy and Strategy alongside environmental legislation. The Department of Land Economy endeavours to:
  • take in to account and action the University's Transport Strategy, encourage walking, cycling, use of public transport and car sharing, and take part in efforts to tackle the carbon footprint of flights;
  • ensure all new starters are inducted in environmental sustainability matters;
  • maintain the premises in an environmentally sensitive way and build interest in regular gardening and biodiversity activities within the Department;
  • lead by example, and actively encourage responsible environmental practices, communicating these effectively to staff and suppliers;
  • maximise recyclable waste and minimise non-recyclable waste,  reusing and repurposing goods already purchased where possible;
  • reduce energy consumption;
  • reduce water consumption through efficient use and management e.g. use only tap water in meetings, report dripping taps, use low flush, encourage short showers;
  • fully support the University of Cambridge Travel Plan by encouraging sustainable modes of transport and communication amongst its staff, students and visitors which will in turn minimise environmental impact.
