Welcome to our Sustainability webpage! Here at City College Plymouth, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices both on campus and in our wider community.
SUSTAINABILITY AT CITY COLLEGE
Our Sustainability Mission
Our mission is to promote and integrate sustainable practices in every aspect of our college. We aim to reduce our carbon footprint, promote the use of renewable energy, minimize waste and consumption, and support environmental education and outreach.
Our Sustainability Targets
Hedgehog Friendly Campus
City College Plymouth is offering free hedgehog houses to schools, nurseries and care homes that might wish to provide these prickly critters with somewhere safe and snug to sleep.
Thanks to a scheme spearheaded by a 17-year-old student, the College has ten flatpack hedgehog houses that are easy to assemble and perfect for providing these cute creatures with a safe and secure home.
Join us in our sustainability efforts!
We encourage all staff and students to join us in our sustainability efforts. You can contribute to our sustainability goals by:
- Reducing energy consumption by turning off lights and electronics when not in use.
- Using public transportation, cycling, or walking to commute to college.
- Minimizing waste by using reusable bags and containers, and recycling materials.
- Supporting local and organic food options.
- Participating in our sustainability events and outreach activities.
Together, we can make a positive impact on the environment and create a sustainable future for ourselves and generations to come.
