Sustainability Committees Enhancement Project

Developing leadership in Sustainability requires a whole-institutional approach. Sustainability Committees (or equivalent) offer an opportunity for individuals working in different parts of the institution to engage, communicate and take action on sustainability matters, with the support of senior management.
