Our commitment  

We’re committed to supporting and encouraging our colleagues in all their environmental sustainability-related work.

Our Environmental Sustainability Team offer personal support and guidance to catalyse activity across the University, along with creating a culture of sharing and learning.  

We also keep colleagues updated on the latest sustainability initiatives through our strategy, webpages and social media, along with communicating our progress against sustainability targets in a way that encourages active participation.
