Monitoring and Improvement
Warwick Students Union complies with and where possible aims to exceed all relevant regulatory requirements. We continually monitor environmental performance, looking to improve wherever we can.
We do our best to incorporate environmental factors into all of our organisational decisions and use environmental criteria in any tender decision.
We endeavour to increase employee awareness through training and communication so that environmental consideration becomes second nature within Warwick Students' Union.
Impacts & Aspects
WSU has identified the key aspects of its activities on the environment and grouped them into 4 categories.
These aspects have then been reviewed to identify their impact on the environment and the results tabled below.
Premises – Includes the main aspects of the use of the physical environment of the building in which we are housed.
External environment – Includes the main aspects of our effect on the externally to our premises and the impact on the local neighbourhood and environment.
Suppliers/Vendors – Includes the aspects associated with production and delivery logistics of products supplied and the activities of invited vendors who use our facilities.
Operations – Includes the aspects of our activities that do not fall into any of the above categories.
High: Is a top priority as impact of successful intervention/efficiency management is very high.
Medium: Is where impact of intervention is less, however legislation, Union policy or University dictate raise its importance.
Low: Is where impact of intervention is negligible however the Union considers it its Social Corporate responsibility to highlight impact on the register and proportion responsibility to reduction of impact however negligible.
