On this page you can find information about our sustainability priorities, helpful resources and guides, and the latest environmental news from Lincoln.

Our priorities

  • Carbon: determine our baseline carbon emissions, start tracking them monthly, and think about how to reduce and offset our emissions
  • Grove boilers (these need to be replaced): investigate green alternatives to gas boilers
  • Building assessments: conduct detailed assessments of buildings to determine what action we can take to reduce our carbon footprint and reduce energy costs
  • Waste management and recycling: increase the amount we recycle across sites while reducing overall waste
  • Heating management: investigate technology/devices that will allow us to control heating in our build
