The Parties agree that the long term sustainability of conditions for University employment and staff job security depends on the restriction of carbon emissions, reductions in energy and water consumption and the development of environmentally sustainable work practices within the University. To facilitate discussion and the development of initiatives to promote environmental sustainability:
- staff and their Unions will be kept regularly informed about the University’s carbon emission, water and energy consumption levels through the M&SCC;
- the M&SCC will be informed in a timely manner about any proposal or change in work practices or the built work environment intended to restrict carbon emissions, or reduce energy or water consumption. Such changes should not disadvantage staff in their employment or increase health and safety risks for staff; and
- the staff representatives on the M&SCC will appoint two members who will sit on the Emissions Reduction Working Group.
