Uni moves towards greener practices 

CQUniversity is moving towards a greener workplace, launching a new webpage and office guide on environmentally friendly practices.

In 2011, several University staff in Bundaberg and Mackay took part in a Green Office Challenge where they identified ways to improve and implement sustainable workplace practices on campus.

PhotoID:12661Working with the Safety and Environment Unit, staff members compiled a list of sustainable practices for energy, water, waste, recycling and awareness.

As a result, the Green Office Guide was compiled which showcases various initiatives and programs that can be implemented by all CQUniversity staff.

CQUniversity's Safety and Environment Risk Advisor Brendan Taylor said the work put in by staff members ensured CQUniversity was doing its part in improving the environment.

“The response was outstanding and the energy and commitment displayed by staff and management resulted in a number of excellent initiatives and programs being launched,” Mr Taylor said.
