BPCSU understands that Green Impact is important to our students and the environment because of this, we campaign for change in order for The College to reduce its carbon footprint. We are always actively looking for ways to make the College more greener, such as our Green Impact campaigns, but we need your help to make this happen!

In the last 3 years, the number of A4 sheets of paper that were printed at the College reduced by 36.35% from 4.4 million sheets to 2.8 million sheets
