  • People in the UK use so many resources we would need three planets if the whole world lived like we do. An average North American would need five! Ghandi quote: On the eve of India’s independence, Mahatma Gandhi was asked whether he thought the country could follow the British model of industrial development. His response retains a powerful resonance in a world that has to redefine its relation to the earth’s ecology: "It took Britain half the resources of this planet to achieve its prosperity. How many planets will India require for development?"
  • I took 3 flights in the last 12 months Spent too much on tools (although they were for my bicycle!!)
  • We start the century at 1.5 billion We end the century, after adding another billion every 12 years at 6 billion and we are not at 6.9 billion. By mid century we are predicted to be at 9 billion. The 9 billion people are of course all aspiring to live the sort of standard of living that we have in the UK, so as we move forward we not only adding another 50% to the population we have also increased demand for resources per head of the population on the planet
  • Following are some artist representations of London in the future from the project ‘Post cards from the Future’
  • Shanty Towns surrounding Buckingham Palace
  • Gherkin converted to social housing
  • Why is sustainable development important for higher education? Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge facing the world today. To meet this challenge, the world needs minds capable of creating new possibilities for meeting our basic needs such as energy, water, shelter and food; minds that can transform our daily experiences into ones that allow a sustainable development, safeguarding our opportunities and the environment for future generations. The higher education sector is where these minds are trained and developed. Therefore, it is crucial that the sector contributes strongly to sustainable development. It can do so by training and expanding these young minds; researching answers to challenges and informing public policy; showing its own understanding and commitment through careful campus management; and by being a responsible employer and active member of the business and local community.
  • People & Planet Green League has brought sustainability at Universities into the minds of senior management. The University is measured on 10 different criteria and compared to other UK universities. In 2009 Greenwich was 103 rd , in 2010 it came 61 st . In 2011 we reached a brilliant 5 th ! Kingston Uni was 2 nd highest
  • Green Travel & Transport – Simon Earp Building Services manager – Nigel Heugh - part of the role includes energy reduction Sustainable Development Manager – Kat Thorne Sustainability Projects Officer – John Bailey ILS Sustainability Champions: AH – Carol Rostek, Neil Elliot Gre: Jaswant Singh, David Young Med: Karen Worden, Lynn Finnemore
  • The University is implementing an Environmental Management System based on the internationally recognised ISO 14001. The University of Greenwich has joined the EcoCampus Environmental Management award scheme for 2010. The aims of the EcoCampus Scheme are to encourage, reward and provide tools to assist institutions in moving towards environmental sustainability through good operational and management practices. This year University of Greenwich achieved the EcoCampus Bronze award.
  • Production of CO2 - contributing to climate change and global warming resulting in sea level rise, changing weather patterns, increased incidence of pest / diseases, damage to human health / quality of life and biodiversity Depletion of finite resources Production of oxides of nitrogen leading to photochemical smog formation, resulting in damage to human health, damage to plants and reduction of biodiversity Production of sulphur dioxide leading to damage to human respiratory health and formation of acid rain resulting in forest decline and lake acidification
  • And all when we have clean, cold, drinking water from our taps!!
  • £ 2 Million – Wayne Rooney’s salary for 2 months, 2 million energy saving light bulbs, 1 tonne Carbon = 1 hot air balloon 1,000 tonnes = weight of 250 fully grown male adult elephants, Londoners produce 3.4 million tonnes of rubbish a year - enough to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool every hour. (according to the GLA)
  • * Based on a 2008/9 baseline = to HEFCE target
  • War – What is it good for? – Not the climate!
  • This year the University is undertaking the Higher Education Carbon Management Programme run by the Carbon Trust. In line with HEFCE’s requirements for Universities to have a signed off Carbon Management Plan to meet their funding criteria (CIF2). HEFCE have set sector wide aspirations for the Higher Education sector to cut their carbon emissions by 43% by 2020 based on a 2005/6 baseline. Through the Carbon Management Plan the University is trying to create a plan to reduce our Carbon Emissions by 35% by 2015 and 50% by 2020. The aspiration is to become a leader in the sector.
  • Internal competition - chance to win Ice Cream – trips to the O2 Dome Money back at the end of the year! Chance to wear green lycra! RAs to do the postering and help with the recruiting of the eco-power rangers + reminders when doing the halls visits on duty.
  • The UK currently sends over 300 kg of waste per person per year to landfill (Eurostat) and the South East sends more to landfill than any other region. At £56 per tonne, landfill is becoming expensive too. Graph shows approximate rates for August 2010
  • One of the best ways to be environmentally friendly is to cut down on what you use in the first place, rethink about what you need, reduce what you buy/consume to sensible levels, reuse what you can and then recycle what you need to throw away If we didn’t throw this away we could collectively achieve 10% of George Osborne’s spending cuts!
  • Reminders while doing duty at the end of the term.
  • Focused on behaviour change. Should be able to reduce Carbon Emissions by 5-10% through behaviour change. Neil Garrod to be supporting the champions. Vice Chancellor’s office is also competing in the Green Impact scheme. Trialled at Bristol 2 years ago – success, last year a further 21 universities signed up and this year there are more than 30.
  • Fascinating facts about bees In a typical bee colony you will find: 1 queen (female) 300 drones (males) 25,000 older workers, foragers (female) 25,000 young workers in the hive attending the brood that might consist of: 9,000 larvae requiring food 6,000 eggs (from which the larvae hatch) 20,000 older larvae and pupae in sealed cells which need no attention except to be kept warm at around 35°C   The queen can lay over 1000 eggs a day which is more than her bodyweight.   Bees eat honey primarily to fuel their wing muscles. They fly within a radius of up to 4 miles of their hive though few go that far. Their top speed is about 22mph (32 Km/h). Honey fuel consumption is approximately 7 million miles per gallon – compared to 34 miles per gallon for the top performing diesel vehicle in the University’s fleet!   To collect enough nectar and pollen for a large jar of honey (500g) a bee would have to travel the equivalent distance of twice around the world which would involve visiting 10,000 flowers.   Before electricity and gas bees wax was more important to man than honey, bees wax can burn very economically with no smoke when burnt with the right size wick.

  • Carbon8 – University spin off company pioneering research into innovative capture of carbon dioxide Algae Fuel – To fuel a CHP in Medway Stockwell Street – Developing a BREEAM Excellent building for School of Architecture Hadlow College – Sustainable Agriculture School of Science – Developing renewable energy projects with Ian Cakebread The Sustainability Team is determined to take the message of sustainability and positive environmental action to the students. We have had a presence at the Freshers’ Fayres. We signed up nearly 50 students interested in gaining work experience in the University Sustainability Team. We are planning Go Green Week for February 2011. Sustainability is being engrained into the education and research programmes at the University.
  • Sustainability Round up! Policies – Fairtrade, Biodiversity, Sustainable Food Carbon Management Plan Fairtrade Accreditation Good Egg Award for Free-Range Eggs Organic milk MSC Fish Green cleaning products New bins Widescale videoconferencing EcoCampus Bronze Sustainability Blog Twitter Green Travel Plan Sustainable Procurement Policy Green Week Bees Biodiversity Steering Group End-of-Term Re-Use Scheme Sustainability Champions Network 1 st Class Award in the People & Planet Green League
  • Our waste and recycling rates have already improved thanks to signage, new bins and working with interserve and bywaters. New bins coming to medway! Still a lot more to do before we reach our aim! University aspirational targets: 30% by July 2016 and 40% by July 2020
  • Based on 2009/10 baseline
  • The way you behave at work will impact the University’s performance in achieving its targets for reducing carbon emissions and waste. We estimate that we can reduce our carbon emissions by between 5-10% through behaviour change alone. You and your colleagues are key to our performance!
  • Nelly Furtardo reached No. 4 in the UK chart with her environmental message! Nelly reached No. 4 in the UK and No.1 in the USA.
  • You can see from the graph where the average UK citizen can make their biggest carbon reduction. Flying – make a trip into Europe using the boat or train instead of flying. Take one big holiday instead of lots of short breaks. Loft insulation isn’t expensive and it is easy to install – often the best quick win in the home! Heating less helps – try a winter jumper. Walking and cycling have huge benefits for health as well as cutting carbon and saving money. Why not cycle or walk to the train station instead of driving?
