The team at Rowan Tree is committed to a greener future. Here are some of the initiatives we are undertaking towards helping our environment:
- All staff are trained on green issues and encouraged to contribute towards making our hostel greener. They walk, cycle or use public transport to get to work.
- All plastic, paper, cardboard, aluminum cans and glass, batteries and gas cylinders are collected and recycled.
- We use recycled paper for all our printing needs and recycle ink and toner cartridges.
- We have installed motion-controlled lighting where suitable to reduce energy wastage.
- All showers and taps are fitted with push buttons to reduce water wastage.
- The hostel is powered by Energia who supply green electricity from a range of wind farms.
- We are calculating our carbon emissions and will be offsetting this.
- Solar panels are installed on the roof to reduce the amount of energy used to heat the water.
