Sustainability – Green Pages
I’m proud of Trinity’s focus on sustainability, particularly because it’s driven by both staff and students and it goes across the university – from research and education programmes to practical campus initiatives
Green Flag In 2013 Trinity became the first university in a capital city to obtain the Green Flag and join the Green Campus programme. In 2016, we led the way with Trinity becoming the first university in Ireland to divest its investments from fossil fuels.
Get Involved The goals of the Green Campus programme are not the responsibility of a single individual or even one office. It takes the combined collaborative effort and enthusiasm of many. From energy resources to waste management, sustainability is being woven into the core of Trinity’s infrastructure.
Sustainability Initiatives We already have buildings with rainwater harvesting, solar thermal (water heating) panels, green roofs and biodiversity gardens. Further innovations are being planned for, and designed into our new buildings.
Know your campus Explore the Green Maps of Trinity, they will tell you where to recycle, where there are innovative energy retrofits on campus, rainwater harvesting and green roofs.
