What is the purpose of our Green Campus Week?


To make Dublin Business School a greener and more sustainable place to work and study.

 

__________________________________________

GREEN CAMPUS WEEK AIMS:

To encourage the staff and students of DBS to incorporate 'Green Campus' themed initiatives into their daily routine.

To communicate with the DBS staff, students and the wider community to raise awareness on how to conserve energy, reduce waste and recycle better on a daily basis.

To actively educate our staff and students around global warming, CO2 emissions and their role in creating a more sustainable world for everyone.

 

THEMES FOR 2016:

  • Waste reduction & recycling

  • Utilizing technology

  • Energy conservation

  • Greener transportation

  • Printing efficiency 

So what exactly is Global Warming?
 

Global warming is the gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants.
 

What are the effects of 'Global Warming'
 

Global warming is damaging the Earth's climate as well as the physical environment. One of the most visible effects of global warming can be seen in the Arctic as glaciers, permafrost and sea ice are melting rapidly. Global warming is harming the environment in several ways including:

  • Desertification
  • Increased melting of snow and ice
  • Sea level rise
  • Stronger hurricanes and cyclones
Thinking how we at DBS contribute to CO2 emissions.
 
As Ireland's largest provider of third level education, we have our role to play in monitoring how we produce CO2 and various other pollutions into the environment, as well trying to be more conservative with our daily energy habits. With the large number of students we have and the nature of what we do, our college offers a considerable amount of CO2 emissions and other pollutions on a daily basis. Although CO2 production is inevitable for most organisations, we can be more efficient and 'Greener' in what we do. Let's raise the bar.

Flicking off the lights on the way out, turning off projectors, recycling properly and keeping the A/C off are just basic ways to kick start the movement in-house at DBS.
 
__________________________________________
Since the start of the 2016/17 academic term we have printed nearly 2,000,000 individual pages at DBS (staff & students). 2,000,000 individual pages. That's not including CO2 production to power each machine, the heat each of them produce and the ink required to make these pages happen. This figure is very alarming. So to give you a better understanding of this level of this out put let us break the CO2 emissions down for you:

 
2,000,000 pages = 124 trees and around 16,000 kg of CO2
16,000 kg of CO2 is equal to the following:
  • A 747 could fly for 30.30 minutes non-stop
  • An average car could be driven for 25.90 days non-stop
  • The energy use of an average house could be met for 449 days
  • A 42 inch LCD TV could be used for 10.94 years continuously
 
We can be smarter.
We can be greener.
We can make a difference.
