A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

Every new employee to UCC undertakes an induction training session with the HR department. A slide on Green Campus is included in this session. The session is followed by an "orientation cafe", where all staff are invited to browse the various services on offer at the university and provided with refreshments. A "Green Campus" stand is held at each orientation cafe so that staff can learn about the various initiatives ongoing in UCC in relation to sustainability, and sign up to take part in the programme or receive newsletters.
