Project Description

The Green Charter is essentially a “this is how we do things here” guide to environmental management on site.  Most organisations will have a substantial Environmental Policy in existence with specific policy statements related to waste; energy; water and other potential environmental issues. This is often a large document and not easily remembered by staff or students.  The Green Charter may contain an environmental policy but essentially it should be a guidance document on how environmental issues are handled on campus.  It should include contact details for the Green-Campus Committee, targets from the action plans and best practice guidance specific to the campus.  The Green Charter should be a space on the website accessible to those that use the campus, students, staff and visitors, where environmental information can be published and, more importantly, updated.
