Sustainability is a hot topic nowadays, the 21st century brings a number of social, economic, and environmental issues with it. Whether it is about energy consumption, waste management, workplace ethics, or volunteering; Corporations and organizations are becoming more and more aware that we have an enormous responsibility in creating and maintaining circumstances for a livable future.

All these reasons lead to the decision to get the RBS Student association involved.

Therefore, RISA introduces this year’s brand-new Sustainability Committee.

This new initiative came to life to facilitate a change in behaviors as we feel that sustainable practices should be more part of our lives. We are committed to make an impact on a local level.

We will work in cooperation with students, teachers and the facility managers of RUAS to develop a strategically efficient plan.

Do you wish to join us in working towards a more sustainable future?

We are looking for students who have what it takes and want to join our committee. We want to build a diverse and versatile group of students who are willing to make a change.
