Environment and sustainability

At the Alliance Française de Manchester, we are aware of the challenges facing our planet and we care deeply about behaving as sustainably as we can. In order to reduce our environmental impact, we have introduced the following initiatives:

  • Using recycled paper for all our internal printing needs
  • Gradually withdrawing single-use hot beverage and water cups, encouraging students, members, visitors and staff to use their own re-usable cups and bottles
  • Creating an annually reviewed environmental policy, which details current and planned initiatives
  • Sorting and recycling our waste, with Emerge (Manchester-based social enterprise)
  • Use of recycled paper and a reduced-size format for all external advertising campaigns using print materials

We are aware that much remains to be done and welcome feedback and suggestions from our students and members! More is coming, so watch this space…
