RE-CREW Environmental Code

All project materials, products and deliverables will include the following text:

“Think before printing any material, if it is really necessary. In case something needs to be printed, it is worth thinking about where to print it (e.g. local print shop, ecofriendly online print shop, etc.), on what kind of paper (e.g. recycled paper, grass paper, other alternatives to usual white paper) and with what kind of colors.

Let’s protect our environment!”


Also, on main project’s communication tools (website, online brochures, newsletters, social media, etc.) partners shall refer to the project environmental code and the bellow green practices:

  • DECISION MAKING PROCESSES: premised that the project does not provide any material interventions and therefore will have a very low impact on the environment by definition.
  • ONLINE COMMUNICATION OUTSIDE AND WITHIN THE PARTNERSHIP: The virtual communication, collaboration and shared repository technologies will be the main drivers of the project.
  • NO POLLUTION: during projects, there is often a need to retire outdated equipment. When these needs arise, project partners will make sure to dispose of these items in a way that has the least impact on the environment.
  • PLANNING: project partners will add a section for environmental impact to the project prospectuses or charters, risk management evaluations, plans of action, etc.
  • TIME MANAGEMENT: project partners will schedule tasks appropriately and set the teams adequately so that they can minimize overtime and its added energy consumption.
  • NO PAPER: project partners will require project management status reports and paperworks to be submitted or used digitally, in order to reduce paper consumption.
  • ENERGY SAVING: project partners will switch to laptop computers rather than desktops as they require less energy.
  • RE-CYCLING: during events or project meetings project partners will provide facilities to promote easy and convenient disposal and recycling of materials;
