Our Carbon Footprint Policy

We are proudly doing our bit for a better and more green future!

Our carbon footprint, as a society, is the direct effect  our actions and lifestyle have on the environment in terms of carbon dioxide emissions.

The biggest contributors to carbon footprints are probably our travel needs & electricity demands at home. However, all of our actions have a direct or indirect impact, including our diet, and the clothes we wear.

We know cars, buses, ships and aeroplanes burn fuel, public transport may use petrol, diesel or electricity and your home uses a significant portion of your personal electricity needs that generally comes from fossil fuel burning power plants. All these actions contribute to accelerating global warming and climate change.

School of Shipping’s solution:

At School of Shipping we are proudly doing our bit to educate learners about helping reduce carbon emissions.

What about saving water, trees and recycling?

All employees at School of Shipping know and understand the importance of recycling and have implemented the following at School of Shipping:  

  • We re-use paper
  • We keep wall plugs switched off and unplugged when not in use and cut down on wastage.
  • We minimise the use of paper cups.
  • Learners are also shown a DVD on the importance of saving our planet and the protection of our environment. The DVD is locally produced and aligned to a Unit Standard.
