It’s Better OFF is back

5 November 2013

The University’s award winning sustainability campaign It’s Better OFF is back and is now recruiting new Champions and Enthusiasts.

Originally launched in 2008, It’s Better OFF to be Sustainable has already saved the University more than £300K and 2000 tonnes of carbon, and has seen recycling rates increase from 9% in 2005/6 to 75% this year.

The campaign has returned with full support from the senior management team and schools operation managers, and aims to build on its successes so far. It’s Better OFF is a key tool in achieving the University’s Environmental Standards, which set out its commitment to implementing environmentally responsible standards and practices.

As part of the re-launch the sustainability team is looking to recruit Environmental Champions and Environmental Enthusiasts to actively support the campaign. A rewards package is planned for those taking part.

Anyone interested in signing up should attend one of two sustainability information sessions, planned this month. Bookings can be made via my.HR.

It’s Better OFF aims to promote positive behaviour change by raising awareness of sustainability best practice, and generate measurable improvements by engaging and motivating staff, students and the wider community. For more information visit www.lboro.ac.uk/sustainability
