We are proud & excited to announce that we have gained accreditation as a Green Standard Schools.
ACET is the first language school in Ireland to have environmental and sustainability policies recognised by this new scheme.
The aim of Green Standard Schools accreditation is to lessen the impact that language teaching has on the environment by developing a set of policies and practices that language teaching institutions and their stakeholders can adopt and adhere to.
As a socially responsible organisation we commit to the process of continual improvement and we fully support the effort of working towards a cleaner environment.
New procedures such as online bookings will continue to reduce the need for paper reducing wastage. A staff-led ‘green team’ looks at every area of our operation to help reduce energy use, waste and to promote environmentally friendly solutions. We have introduced a drink machine with recycled/recyclable cups, promotional materials minimising the use of paper and avoiding plastic and non-recyclable matter.
We are delighted to announce that ACET has signed up to the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2021-2025
The All-Ireland Pollinator Plan is about all of us coming together to try to create an Ireland where pollinators can survive and thrive.
