Supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our University Strategy states our commitment to optimising our contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals through our research, teaching, campus and operations. View the latest Annual Sustainability Report.

We are a signatory of the SDG Accord and we continue to develop our portfolio of sustainability initiatives. Our sustainability journey to date has seen some excellent results. We were a finalist in the Green Gown Awards 2018 in the Student Engagement category and were highly commended in two categories (Best Newcomer and Carbon Reduction) in Green Gown Awards 2017. We have reduced our carbon emissions by over 30% against a 2005/06 baseline and are on track to achieve a 40% reduction by 2020. We have an ISO 14001 certified Environmental Management System and have obtained the Platinum EcoCampus Award.
