R³- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

 Socrates

 

The EUI is committed to promote a culture of shared responsibility and awareness of environmental sustainability within our community.

Reduce Consumption


We aim to reduce the consumption of utilities by an average of 20% over the next three years by raising awareness and impementing energy-saving modifications.

The current EUI annual consumption is:

  • Water: approx. 20,000 cubic mt.
  • Energy: approx. 3,265,000 KWh
  • Heating oil: approx. 54,000 litres
  • Natural Gas: approx. 305,000 cubic mt.

Reuse Materials


We aim to reduce the quantity of paper consumed and to increase the proportion we recycle.

The current EUI annual consumption is:

  • 900,000 A4 sheets of non-recycled white paper
  • 2,230,000 A4 sheets of recycled paper
  • 25,000 A3 sheets of non-recycled white paper

Recycle Waste


We aim to increase our recycling rate to 60% of our material waste by eraising awareness and through better collection methods.

The EUI now recycles approximately:

  • 48% of all the material waste it produces
In 2018, following an initiative by the researchers' and academic community supported by the Real Estate and Facilities Service, an Environmental Sustainability Working Group was created: its mandate is to gather contributions for rethinking the environmental strategy of the Institute and help implement possible corrective measures.
