We are thrilled to formally welcome Trinity College Dublin into the ISCN!
Trinity College Dublin today joined the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) to participate in a global exchange between campus sustainability leaders to further best practices. In signing the charter at a ceremony that kicked off the annual Green Week, Trinity became the first Irish university to be accepted for its commitment to the ISCN’s sustainability goals.
Joining the ISCN represents the next step in Trinity’s long-standing desire to promote sustainability and encourage its staff and students to live more sustainable lives. The Green Campus Committee, populated by students and staff alike, was established in 1993 and the Sustainability policy was formally adopted by the College Board in 2008. An Taisce certified Trinity as a Green Flag campus in 2013, while the College Strategic Development Plan (SDP) 2014-2019 incorporates sustainability actions and initiatives into strategic college management and operations. Additionally, to drive this commitment, the Provost's Advisory Committee on Sustainability and Low Carbon Living was established in 2017 and staff and students have signed up to Sustainability Networks to act as ambassadors.
