We’ve cut our carbon emissions by 44.5% since 2005


And achieved a key carbon reduction target 3 years early, as shown in our latest Sustainability Report.

We're recognised as a leader in our sector for our commitment to sustainability, and we're proud that we're continuing to make great progress. You can see how, and find out more, in our latest Annual Sustainability Report as well as how we can continue to work together to support our efforts for a sustainable future.

In the report, we've introduced the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's), adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, to help raise awareness on this universal call to action by all countries (poor, rich and middle-income) to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030. The 17 Goals relate closely to our teaching, research and operations and are referenced throughout.

The report is based on the latest Estates Management Record data (2016/17) which is submitted to HESA each year and illustrates how we're fulfilling our commitments set out in our Sustainability Policy.
