In Labelup we aim to promote the protection and enhancement of the environment and to educate staff and our consumers in environmental issues. Our aim is to contribute, as responsible members of society, to a reduction in waste and carbon usage and to provide a safe, sustainable and pleasant environment in which to learn and work.
The underpinning ethos of the college is to:
- Ensure that we are compliant with environmental legislation
- Recognise that we are both a consumer and provider of services and respond appropriately to this;
- Recognise our areas for development and implement improvements
- To use resources carefully which in turn will help to reduce consumer costs by reusing the materials that is possible to.
- Ensure that partners and stakeholders with whom we work e.g. subcontractors, adopt and abide by LabelUP’s environmental and sustainability principles. LabelUp will ensure that due diligence is carried out prior to working with partners and stakeholders and will monitor the relationship on an ongoing basis to assess the extent of compliance with these principles
