Sustainability is really important to us at Riseholme College. From small steps to big projects, here are just a few of the things we're doing to become more sustainable...

Solar energy

We have solar panels on our main building, sports centre and our new student accommodation, as well as a new bank of ground Solar panels to charge our ground equipment.

Electric cars

We have begun to replace our older diesel fuelled cars with electric vehicles.

Reducing single use plastics

We have switched from single use plastic to recyclable and compostable options and offer discounts to encourage reusable mugs and crockery.

Locally sourced food

To help minimise our carbon footprint, as well as ensuring delicious food, we source locally grown/produced produce for our refectory wherever possible. We even use vegetables from our own veg plot on site.

Green Spaces

As well as being nestled in the Lincolnshire countryside, our campuses are as getting greener every day as we continue to be involved with projects such as planting trees for the Queen’s Green Canopy.

EAUC Membership

We are a member of the EAUC  - a membership organisation acting as a champion for the Further and Higher Education sector in Sustainability and Environment.
