CEDARS’ Commitment to Sustainability and Inclusion

The Centre of Development and Resources for Students (CEDARS) makes continuous and conscious efforts in contributing to the Sustainability Goals and Policy of the University of Hong Kong. Our commitments are reflected in the concrete actions that we practice and the policies we adhere. 

At work and official functions, we

1.     Consume Responsibly 
  • use environmentally responsible paper 
  • use scrap paper for drafts and notes 
  • recycle paper waste 
  • distribute documents in electronic copies as far as possible
  • use recyclable packaging if disposable bottled water is needed
  • decline souvenirs presented to us at ceremonies and events
  • present socially responsible souvenirs to our guests
  • serve low carbon meals at high table organised for students
  • ban shark fins
2.     Empower and Promote Inclusion
  • attend to the diverse needs of people with disabilities and of different religious and ethnic backgrounds
  • use braille on name cards
  • adhere to web accessibility standards issued by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)  
  • serve fair trade tea and coffee to our guests
