Sustainability is really important to us.
For many years we have been working to make our campuses more sustainable, from stopping supplying plastic straws and increasing compostable packaging for take away food, to using locally sourced and ethical produce, to ambitious energy and sustainable procurement projects.
Furthermore, we aim to create a healthy, ecologically, economically and socially responsible living environment. We recognise our responsibility towards promoting the principles of one planet living; including minimising our use of non-renewable resources, appropriate planning and investment in sustainable practices, using locally sourced and ethical produce, the involvement of customers, and by providing an education in sustainability relevant to a world threatened by climate change.
For instance, since 2009 all new development on the Penryn Campus has been designed to high environmental standards (BREEAM Excellent).
We proudly fly the Green Flag Award for our stunning Campus grounds and gardens. The judges described our grounds as a “wonderful, unique” place and a “horticultural wonder”. Above all, our gardens are a “perfect habitat” for wild flowers, insects, birds and bees. Furthermore, the judges described Tremough and the Italianate gardens as a “plant collector’s paradise”.
Most noteworthy, Cornwall Plus are a Gold winner in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2020/21 for the International category, have won Best Accommodation 2019/20 with Academic Venue Solutions, and are silver winners in the British Youth Travel Association Awards 2019/20. Also, the team have a silver Cornwall Tourism Awards 2017 for the International Visitor Experience and a 4* campus accommodation and service grading with Visit England.
Ultimately, all profits made by Cornwall Plus are gifted back to Falmouth Exeter Plus for reinvestment in the University campus and its services, to directly benefit students, staff and visitors.
