Following the public commitment made by Queen Mary University of London to incorporate sustainability principles and practices throughout its core activities, the role of Environmental Sustainability Champion (ESC) was created.
Environmental Sustainability Champions are staff who have completed the Environmental Sustainability Skills for the Workforce training and who volunteer their time to support to the University to improve its sustainability performance through the following:
ESCs meet every 1-2 months and report directly to QMUL’s Sustainability Committee, a group made up of representatives across the organisation who have a responsibility for delivering our environmental sustainability policy and environmental sustainability action plan (2020 - 2023).
If you would like to find out more information of how you get involved with the ESCs or would like to raise an issue for the group to discuss then email firstname.lastname@example.org
