About Us

So much of what the rural sector does impacts on the environment. As one of the leading colleges in this sector we are always looking at ways to minimise our effect on the environment.

In 2011 we produced a Carbon Management Plan which was signed off by the Carbon Trust.  In this we committed to reduce our carbon footprint by 25% by 2014.

To tie in with this Carbon Management Plan, we also launched the LESS campaign in 2011, which encourages staff and students to use LESS energy, fuel and water and create LESS waste.

Some of the current projects being undertaken by staff and students include:

  • Growing more food locally in collaboration with the HadLOW Carbon Community.  This encourages 'green exercise' and facilitates better diets for all.
  • Encouraging students to engage in entrepreneurial projects, which enhances their employability skills, by engaging with the local economy.
  • Making more efficient use of resources such as fossil energy and mains water, and seek renewable and locally-obtained alternatives.
