College’s green credentials go platinum

City of Glasgow College has achieved Platinum level in the Resource Efficiency Pledge.

Zero Waste Scotland’s nationwide scheme is backed by the Scottish Government to help businesses use energy, water and raw materials more efficiently.

Paul Little, Principal & Chief Executive, City of Glasgow College, said:

“Our college has developed environmental policies and implemented a range of actions to reduce emissions and waste, and to improve our recycling rates.

"I am delighted that all the hard work our college has put in has achieved platinum level which is the highest standard of excellence. This is an outstanding achievement which clearly demonstrates our college’s commitment to resource efficiency.”  

Christopher Khan, Business Development Officer with City of Glasgow College, said:

“Our college has achieved platinum level within two years of gaining the bronze pledge. Continual improvement is at the heart of the scheme and to retain the platinum level our college must complete at least three new pledge actions over the next two years.

“This gives us the chance to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to resource efficiency, and also to continue to benefit from exemplary practices.”
