WORK DONE & ACHIEVEMENTS BY ASPECT OF WORK

Policy
- Committee for Sustainable Development – Work continued for determining the future sustainability direction of ACG as a whole, including Alba. ). Involvement in preparation of STARS application and later in the guidance / supervision of the sustainability work on campus. The Committee met regularly throughout this period to discuss progress and actions to be done.
- Sustainability strategy and action plan: A sustainability strategy for ACG (see annex 1) was developed by the external consultant (Mr. Stelios Vogiatzis) in close collaboration with the Committee for Sustainable Development in spring 2016. An action plan for 2016-17 (see annex 2) was drafted on the basis of the sustainability strategy. The action plan was implemented in the 2016-17 academic year as foreseen.

Technical work
- STARS – Bronze medal: The Office of Public Affairs decided to submit an application to STARS – a system for the assessment of the sustainability work done at universities – in 2014, after many discussions with the Director of the CES. The task was coordinated by Mr. Stelios Vogiatzis (external consultant) and Ms Rania Assariotaki. CES closely collaborated with the Office of Public Affairs, collected and provided all the information about the academic aspects, provided information regarding also technical works that contributed to sustainability on campus (as the CES had been collecting such information in the past), and contributed to the whole task. ACG was awarded the Bronze medal, to a large extent, due to the existence and work done by the Center of Excellence for Sustainability.
- Green roofs on campus: 1 more piece of the green roof opposite the President’s office installed in spring 2016. Total: 9 green roofs; area: ~ 150m2.
In 2016-17: effort to install a green roof on a school in Ag. Paraskevi. After extensive discussions, visits etc. (from October 2016 – March 2017), the effort proved impossible due to technical reasons on the part of the Municipality. Instead, the green roof opposite the President’s office was completed in May 2017 with the financial support of GREEN.
- Monitoring:
o Monitoring of recovered recyclables at Deree continued on a weekly basis by CES student assistants. Technical / organization problems (regarding the collection of recyclables) were addressed by the CES Director with the Technical Services (agreed: collection done every Thursday). Since the installation of the Recycling points and up to the end of 2016, more than 20,000lt of paper and 15,000lt of other recyclables have been recovered and sent for recycling (via the blue bins).
o The CES personnel proposed a set of monitoring indicators (see annex 3) to be used for monitoring every year. The indicators have been presented by STARS categories (academics, operations, engagement, planning and administration) and people using the campus and they focus on the environmental aspects. Social responsibility aspects should be added. They have been presented in a tabular form. The list indicates the indicators, the units of measurement, along with which office the information should come from and when data should be collected.
- Gamification: The Technical Services initiated an effort to generate a gamification application regarding energy issues with the opportunity of a collaboration with an external assistant. In this context, Mr. Vogiatzis undertook the responsibility to coordinate the completion of this task and the CES the responsibility of preparing the questions and answers that would be included in the game. Those were provided in March 2017. (see annex 10)
- CO2 emissions reduction – transportation survey: CES drafted a short survey regarding transportation methods used by ACG community members. CES student assistants administered it on ….. June 2017 and collected 54 responses. (see Annex 11 and https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/
