Towards a Greener CSU

Some of the greatest ideas come from the simplest conversations.

When people come together to talk about concepts, visions and goals; inspiring things happen.

Since our establishment, CSU Green has been involved in many innovative sustainability-related conversations with Charles Sturt University's (CSU) diverse community. And, best of all, from these grass-root conversations, great sustainability initiatives and projects have taken flight across our campuses.

Read about some of these great projects on the Our Initiatives and Sustainability Grant pages.

CSU Green is the hub for communication and coordination of the sustainability efforts across the CSU campuses. We monitor the University's sustainability efforts and promote and initiate engaging and exciting sustainability activities.

Our focus is particular on reduction of energy and water use, moving the University towards, promoting and embedding sustainability across all CSU operations and platforms. CSU is also committed to making sure our graduates are equipped with the necessary knowledge and know-how to live and work in a sustainable world, with sustainability embedded across all CSU disciplines.

CSU Green is CSU's commitment to a sustainable future for all.

Our team ensures that the University aligns itself with its strategic sustainability targets and obligations.

CSU Green works towards the actions and outputs outlined in CSU's 2015-2016 Sub-Plan (Infrastructure Physical and Virtual), which is part of the broader University Strategy.  

Additionally, the University affirmed its commitment to sustainability through signing the Talloires Declaration, an international agreement signed by over 350 other universities around the world.

In 2015 CSU Green rolled out the LiFE program - a structured process designed especially for tertiary education institutions for evaluating current practices that support or impede good sustainability practices and developing plans in a collaborative manner via cross-organisational participation.

CSU Green receives guidance from the Sustainability Advisory Group and works with Campus Environmental Committees on a number of CSU campuses.
