Green champions

The Wrexham Glyndwr University Carbon Management Plan (Appendix B, pg 25, Stakeholder Management) shows our structure and methods of engagement with staff and students in the implementation of the plan.

Amongst some of our processes, we include our Green Champion scheme.

Green Champions - Making a Greener Glyndwr

Wrexham Glynd┼Ár University is committed to implementing energy conservation practises and measures, preserving environmental resources and reducing our Carbon Footprint. To help us address a full spectrum of environmental and sustainability issues, we are building a team of Green Champion staff volunteers to help us all to be more environmentally aware in the workplace, to bring the best thinking of our employees and together help treat our planet’s resources more carefully and considerately.

Each year training takes place at our Northop Campus in conjunction with Plas Derw Trust, Outdoor and Environmental Educationalists.  PDT training ensures that staff receive information which includes sessions on:

  • What is sustainability
  • What is a Green Champion – How we can help
  • Biodiversity – How ecosystems work
  • Carbon footprint – Energy/pollution
  • Food Systems
  • Resource Use
  • Woodland
