Eco-Friendly NCH

It is important that we all do our bit to look after the environment. Here at NCH, we try our best to be more environmentally friendly wherever possible. Find out more about our eco-friendly initiatives below.

Glass Milk Bottles

Here at NCH, between the staff, faculty and students, we get through a lot of tea and coffee. So, we decided to swap from plastic milk bottles to glass milk bottles.

Oat Milk

We also offer oat milk instead of cow’s milk!

 

Mugs, Cutlery and Coffee Cups

Staff and students are provided with mugs and cutlery so that they can avoid having to use plastic versions. Furthermore, when students start at NCH they are given a reusable coffee cup!

Lights Off Initiative

We encourage all staff, faculty and students to turn lights off when not needed. Moreover, we use energy saving lightbulbs where possible.

Recycling

We recycle as much as possible. In particular, we make sure to recycle paper, printer cartridges, plastic, coffee pods, batteries and light bulbs.

Our paper plants trees

5p from each pack of paper we buy contributes to the work of the Woodland Trust.

Every sheet of Woodland Trust Office Paper supports projects that improve biodiversity, enhance social wellbeing and help the UK landscape adapt to climate change.

Carbon offsetting

 

NCH staff travelling by airplane for research purposes are required to mitigate the impact through a carbon offsetting scheme if they are to claim the travel cost as a research expense.
