Environmental Aspects and Impacts
KCLSU, as with all organisations, needs to be aware of its environmental aspects and impacts. Everything we do, from office
administration at a desk in front of a computers to our trading in the bars has an impact on the environment. Each year we
attempt a number of projects, big and small in an attempt to reduce our impact on the environment. A table outlining KCLSU’s
