We are committed to preventing pollution by reducing emissions 和 discharges by regularly reviewing practice against benchmarks.
We have marked up the drains on campus so in the event of a spillage, it's clear from markers if the drain runs into a sewer where it can be treated or into a water course which could cause harm. Making people aware of the potential harm that can occur from pollution is important.
We promote and encourage all staff who carry radios 和 could be the first responder to an emergency to watch this short Pollution Prevention Pays video on YouTube, and provide spill kits 和 training for key staff.
