EKC Group has bolstered its ambitions for creating a sustainable future by joining The Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC).
The not-for-profit organisation champions sustainability and environmental awareness within the Further and Higher Education sectors, providing support, guidance and resources to UK educational institutions to help them improve their environmental performance.
The EKC Group, which includes six community-based Colleges, three Business Units and a Multi-Academy Trust, is committed to becoming a sustainable and environmentally aware organisation and has taken significant steps in recent years to improve its environmental credentials.
The Group’s Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Stevens, explained: “We are committed to minimising our environmental impact and helping to limit the damaging effects of climate change. We are working closely with our students to make sure our work in this area reflects their priorities and ideas.”
He continued: “Addressing the impact of climate change is clearly something that we cannot, and should not, tackle on our own. Working in partnership with other like-minded organisations is key to maximising our impact in this area.
“Joining the EAUC gives us the opportunity to work with other leaders in further and higher education across the country. Sharing best practice and ideas will help us focus our efforts on areas that will give us the best possible outcomes.
“We are committed to making a difference and our partnership with the EAUC is an important part of that.”
