In order to be able to register for the Green-Campus programme, campuses must complete a pre-registration phase which involves forming a committee of volunteers from among staff and students, carrying out a scoping exercise and gaining support for the programme from senior management. Completing these requirements means that at the point of registration, committees will have a good idea of the following: how the campus operates, who to approach to gain access to data and which thematic areas are relevant to the site and to the individual committee members. Committees are thus well placed to begin the campaign on site.
