  • Improve workplace and campus sustainability across all campuses of the University;
  • Reduce environmental impacts and and assist CSU to improve its sustainability performance in areas underpinned by the Learning in Future Environments Index (LiFE) http://www.csu.edu.au/csugreen/learning-in-future-environments
