Somerset College wins top green award
3:00pm Sunday 17th June 2012 in News
SOMERSET College in Taunton has been awarded an internationally recognised standard for the environmental management of businesses.
Auditors spent two days reviewing the college before awarding it the IS0 14001 certification – a rare achievement for a first time bid.
Since 2008 the College has saved 56 tonnes of electricity, 47 tonnes of gas and 0.38 tonnes of water.
Principal Rachel Davies said: “We are delighted as our staff have worked extremely hard to improve and reduce our environmental impact, plus educating staff and students about what sustainability means and how it impacts on our lives.”
