Environmental sustainability


The University has committed itself to becoming a leading green University and environmental sustainability is one of nine guiding principles in the University's Strategic Plan. We are building on our teaching, research and operational excellence to achieve this.

Our Environmental StrategyPDF file icon covers a number of key operational areas:

The global imperative to reduce carbon emissions and to improve the sustainability of our activities is compelling. The University clearly must contribute by addressing our own operations, but as a higher education institution we are also ideally placed to influence the future through the education of our students and our world-leading research.

This Strategy sets out our objectives in all of these areas. It will require your involvement to deliver the outcomes we seek ─ I hope you will help us achieve them.
