Esher College has a genuine commitment to environmental issues and strives to adopt a more sustainable ‘footprint’
We have an Environmental Champion who has co-ordinated a number of initiatives with students and staff, as well as working with the local community. These include the improvement of on-site recycling and the development of an allotment and garden site.
In 2015, we achieved the Eco Schools Silver award. The Student Union's Eco Executive at the time, Jack Lewis, was instrumental in the College's achievement of this award.
Many students cycle to college and this is actively encouraged with purpose-built bicycle storage racks.
Each year we hold a ‘Green Week’, which includes activities to raise awareness of environmental issues and sustainability. With our current and future building work, we look at sustainability and energy efficiency which includes solar panelling. The College also look for environmental solutions where feasible and cost is not prohibitive. For example, all new College picnic benches are made from recycled plastic, and the college lanyards are made from recycled PET.
