Environment and Sustainability

As a University with a strong focus and awareness of our impact on the local, national and global environment, we are particularly conscious of our responsibilities.

Our students, staff and visitors all contribute to the University's environmental impact and we aim to bring environmental sustainability into all aspects of the University, including teaching, research, operational and international activities. The University is an integral part of the local community and we have the ability to have a strong influence on environmental issues.

The University has an Environmental Management System that ensures we continue to manage our environmental impacts, comply with environmental legislation and commit to protecting and enhancing the environment. You can read more about our Environmental Management System here.
