Sustainability initiatives at the PTFL
Together with the rest of the Radcliffe Humanities building, the PTFL is taking part in the Green Impact Initiative. Supported by the National Union of Students, Green Impact is an award scheme that recognises the work done by staff and students to increase the environmental sustainability of universities across the UK.
PTFL librarians continually work to reduce the library’s environmental impact as low as possible. Here are some of our sustainability initiatives:
- reusable cups (KeepCups)
- movement sensors for lights
- automatic sleep mode for library computers
- recycling bins available throughout the library
- advocacy campaigns highlighting sustainable travel within Oxford and the city’s biodiversity
- radiator control
- electronic publications
- environmentally-friendly printing
If you have any suggestions for other initiatives, please email us.
