Cardiff University

“It was lovely to see such enthusiasm towards each of the new policies and ideas that have been implemented. The team I audited did an excellent job in getting all members of staff to join in activities and accept a new sustainable way of working!

It seems as though the activities, walks, and events have a real sense of community and involvement. The training has provided me with the opportunity and the skills to be a part of a forward thinking programme that is improving people’s quality of working life as well as making workplaces more environmentally sustainable.”
