Here at Aston we are strongly committed to becoming a more sustainable University and have various initiatives in place to make this happen. As new members of staff we would like you to get involved with these and help Aston to make a difference. You can find out more in the University's Sustainability Policy and on our Sustainability Webpages.
All new employees are encouraged to look through the ‘Go Green Staff’ resources on Blackboard to familiarise themselves with Aston’s commitments to sustainability. A general overview of sustainability at Aston can be found within the New Starter presentation. More detailed information is included in the 4 other sections covering ‘Waste & Recycling’, ‘Energy & Carbon’, ‘Sustainable Procurement’ and ‘Sustainable Transport’.
