DMU has a network of Environmental Champions across its faculties and departments which help to communicate information to staff about current environmental campaigns and promotions. The role of the champions is also to encourage colleagues to adopt ‘greener’ habits in the workplace.
Why do we need a network of Environmental Champions?
Like all large organisations, DMU has a significant impact on the environment, through the energy we use, the waste we produce, the products we buy and the way in which we travel.
Although we have implemented a number of projects and initiatives on these issues we still need to raise awareness amongst our students, staff and visitors. The DMU Environmental Champions have a key role to play in this important area. The champions will be instrumental in encouraging others to change the way they interact with the environment.
How does the network work?
Currently there is an Environmental Champion in each faculty and department of the University. The network helps to disseminate information on current environmental projects and initiative and information on how staff can get involved. The champions also encourage colleagues to adopt greener habits in their workplace such as recycling more, reducing waste, saving energy, greener transport and sustainable procurement.
