Social responsibility and sustainability

The Institute for Academic Development has achieved a Gold Sustainability Award!

Gold Office Award - Social Responsibility & Sustainability

Our Gold Award Campaign focused on using technology to enhance sustainability. We were particularly successful on paper reduction, we often now use 10,000 fewer sheets of paper per month by doing things electronically instead! Feel free to take ideas from our paper reduction policy, below.

We have also focused on using Skype and other online communication to reduce travel. We have kept up many of the activities from our previous Silver Award as well. Our ongoing collections of Foodbank donations continues to have high staff engagement. The Gold Award campaign has provided constructive opportunities for discussion and collaboration across the IAD, and has resulted in changes that will be positive for the future.
