My thoughts exactly. ISO14001 is an international standard that sets out and then tests the requirements for effective environmental management within an organisation. It is there to help organisations of any size become more environmentally friendly, by complying with legislation and reducing environmental impacts. In laymen’s terms it is a really big deal and an excellent achievement!

From antique clocks to laptops, our WARPit enthusiasts share their best tips!

As part of our commitment to reducing waste and consumption of materials, UCL partnered with Warpit in 2011. Warpit is a tool all UCL staff can use to share furniture, stationary and equipment needing a new home. It helps staff save money, reduce UCL’s carbon and brings back life into some of the perfectly usable and sometimes interesting antiques- otherwise going to the recycling centre. UCL has currently saved 150060kg of C02 and £350,030 from using WARPit!
