Environmental Sustainability

As a large organisation our operations have a substantial local, national and global environmental impact.

Environmental Sustainability is of key importance at Northumbria University with a commitment to deliver significant improvements in sustainability.

This commitment is reflected in our achievement of the Silver EcoCampus Award in 2016 for our Environmental Management System, covering all activities at our Newcastle campuses, as we move towards ISO 140001 accreditation. Northumbria University has also risen to 40th in the People & Planet University Green League and is proud to be a Fairtrade accredited university.

Our Environmental Sustainability Policy is reviewed annually and agreed by the University Sustainability Management Group.

If you have any suggestions for improving sustainability at Northumbria University, or have any questions, please contact the Sustainability Adviser. You can also get top tips and find out what is going on across the University by following the Sustainability Team on Twitter @NUenvironment.
