We have developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) to manage the environmental impacts of our business on the environment. The EMS is in accordance with international standards under ISO/ANZS 14001. We are focusing our efforts in the following areas to help us reduce our overall impacts and to make us a more sustainable organisation.
The EMS covers the following programs:
- Waste and recycling
- South West Campus Bushland
ECU uses a live environmental data monitoring system to assist in obtaining accurate and up-to-date information on our energy and water consumption and waste produced.
ECU also has a Green Office Program for ECU staff interested in the environment. Green Officers can participate in a variety of environmental experiences including workshops, field trips, discussion forums, as well as planning and undertaking projects at ECU.
