Our Carbon Footprint Policy

Your carbon footprint is the direct effect your actions and lifestyle have on the environment in terms of carbon dioxide emissions. Probably the biggest contributors to your footprint are your travel needs, and your electricity demands at home. However, all your actions have a direct or indirect impact, including your diet, and the clothes you 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. What is School of Shipping doing 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. We re-use paper, 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 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.
