Environment & Sustainability


Clare and the environment

Clare’s staff, students and fellows are committed to reducing the College’s environmental footprint, in many different ways – improving the efficiency of our boilers and electrical equipment, ensuring heating and lighting are only turned on when needed, recycling as much waste as possible, offering great vegetarian food, and producing our own bottled water.  These efforts are paying off: in 2015-16 we cut our gas consumption by 7%, won a Gold Green Impact award, and were rated as the best Cambridge college on recycling and environmental performance. The support of all our college members and conference guests is an essential part of sustaining this progress; if you have suggestions of other things we could do please pass them on to Deborah Hoy, the buildings manager.
