NORTH Coast TAFE has been recognised for its commitment to strengthening its environmental performance.
The North Coast Institute was one of 47 organisations presented with an award at a Recognition Breakfast held in Sydney by the acting head of the Department of Environment, Climate Chance and Water NSW, Simon Smith.
The Institute was given Bronze Partner recognition for cutting more than 900 tonnes of carbon pollution in 2009 and for integrating ecological sustainability into student and staff engagement.
According to Mr Smith, there are now 429 Sustainability Advantage members across the state who are expected to make $42.5 million in financial savings and save 132,000 tonnes of carbon pollution by careful planning and monitoring, developing close relationships with supply chains and by engaging staff.
