Reducing use of paper and plastic
Paper training guides and plastic folders have been fully replaced with digital materials.
Attendance taking at CÉIM sessions has been moved online to reduce paper-based attendance registration.
Group materials for leaders are now supplied in reusable cotton tote bags and plastic Ziploc bags are no longer used.
Single-use water bottles and coffee cups are avoided where possible. Leaders are requested to bring their own drink with them to training.
Documents are only printed when absolutely necessary.
CÉIM session materials are checked and where possible reused from year to year.
Some materials with NUI branding will continue to be used when the new University of Galway branding is introduced.
Where possible, waste is recycled.
Reducing transport carbon footprint
Travel is minimized where possible by using online meeting platforms. When travel is required, public transport options are always considered first.
Materials for CÉIM sessions are transported by hand cart were this is safe to do so to avoid the use of vehicles.
Fostering responsible behaviour
- CÉIM aims to encourage a culture of sustainable practice amongst CÉIM leaders.
