Sustainability in the workplace

  • The new ELMO module ‘Sustainability @ CSU’ has been designed to increase staff awareness and understanding of CSU sustainability, both at an individual and at an organisational level. This module is now available for all new staff joining our organisation and existing staff.

    This module gives you an overview of how CSU is working to be more sustainable through the Learning in Future Environments (LiFE) Index and also suggests what you can do on a personal and professional basis.  It outlines what activities you may like to become involved in across all campuses. Remember, sustainability depends on every individual taking steps to be sustainable in all aspects of their work and life.

Sustainable super options with UniSuper

For some of us, one of the biggest contributors to our carbon footprint comes from the way financial institutions like our super funds and the banks we choose to deal with use our savings to fund the expansion of the fossil fuel industry.

If reducing your carbon footprint is an important consideration for you, then you may be interested to know that our exclusive super provider, UniSuper, have introduced investment products that are actively managed to minimise support or expansion of the fossil fuel sector. You can read more about these products via the followings summaries available on the UniSuper website.
