Student Committee

The Student Committee

Sustainable RSM’s student committee welcomes all student members. Sustainable RSM’s mission is to generate sustainability dialague, research, and action with RSM's stakeholders. The transition to Sustainable RSM this autumn (from Greening RSM) marks the change to addressing social and environmental matters.

Some of the student committee’s current and upcoming projects are:

  • the flyer project (to discourage the use of flyers on campus)
  • the plastic recycling initiative;
  • guest lectures, field trips to sustainable business operations
  • and events on the academic calendar such as Sustainability Day (10 October) and Earth Day (22 April 2013).

Over the past couple of years, the School’s sustainability initiative has made significant achievements, such as the power saving achieved by shutting down student computers outside opening hours, the introduction of of recycled paper and double-sided printing pre-sets on all printers, and the assessment of RSM’s environmental footprint via the Milieu Barometer.


What can students gain from joining the student committee?

Sustainable RSM is recruiting new student committee members to further reach out to classmates about sustainable business operations and events. By joining this relatively new committee, students can become actively involved in further developing Sustainable RSM, by meeting students with similar interest in sustainability and business, exploring the ethical side of business, and interacting directly with not only peers but also with other RSM stakeholders such as professors and guest lecturers. Since Sustainable RSM is now in a major transition phase, any active student input will be of great value.
