Abstract

Environmental Resource and Studies (ERS) 285, meeting the criteria set by WATGreen, has set about researching the activities taking place on the University of Waterloo's campus to assess the sustainability of the system. The following report is a research paper undertaken as a result of this sustainability initiative. The aim of the report is to examine the operational practices of Graphics Services and it's subsidiaries in order to assess whether or not the system is sustainable. Special emphasis has been paid to paper use, photocopier use, photography, and to the management and maintenance of the printing press. The following document outlines a brief summary of the information found based on research conducted regarding the system and outlines the principle recommendations identified necessary to facilitate a sustainable system.
