Sustainability Club

AUT’s approach to sustainability has so far focused on transport, energy and waste. Success in these areas has been achieved by implementing initiatives such as:

  • An alternative transport programme that incentivises staff to relinquish their parking and travel to work using more sustainable transport rather than a single occupancy car
  • Energy efficient lighting and boiler upgrades
  • Painting roofs white to reduce heat gain within buildings
  • Introducing worm farms within the School of Hospitality and Tourism
  • Recycling systems that enable staff and students to responsibly recycle plastic, paper, cardboard, glass and cans.

Looking forward, AUT is looking at water efficiency measures, promoting Fairtrade and continuing to progress other waste reduction initiatives. Click here to see more.
