UCC tells staff ‘on yer bike’!

UCC has not stood still since becoming the World’s first ever Green Campus last year and is to make free bicycles available to its staff for short trips around campus and Cork city to help reduce the university’s carbon footprint. The 2010 international environmental accreditation was overseen by an expert panel that assessed the university’s green campus programme led by UCC students together with staff. The programme has reduced UCC’s landfill by 400 tonnes, increased recycling on campus from 21% to a whopping 60%, and saved the university €300,000 in waste management costs. Look for UCC’s green flag flying high and proud in the Quadrangle.
