SUUGreen is the SU's green initiative.
The University of Greenwich is looking at sustainability and green issues and SUUGreen encompasses the work that we're doing alongside that. This includes getting involved in initiatives such as Go Green Week
and Fairtrade Fortnight
, stocking products like KeepCups
in our outlets and increasing our recycling facilities in our outlets and offices.
The University has a Sustainability team, and you can check out what they're doing through their Twitter page (@sust_greenwich

). On it, you'll find stories, articles and news regarding the University of Greenwich and its actions moving towards a more sustainable future. You can see their latest blog posters below; click the links to read more.
