Reuse and Sustainability
In the ever increasing climate conscious environment it is important to consider the “three R’s” of sustainability: reduce, reuse, recycle.
Some of the ways this is achieved within the team is by reusing and re-purposing equipment, recycling items where possible or disposing of them in an environmentally friendly way, and working on research and development projects that increase the ability of companies to meet sustainable targets. Some of the research projects focus specifically on how to implement knowledge and skills relating to sustainability to industry components while also ensuring those components are still fit for purpose.
The University policy on sustainability can be read in the University sustainability strategy that is based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
