About us

Action Plan and Policy

Current and emerging environmental trends and challenges affect all aspects of our operations. In response, we are exploring opportunities and implementing initiatives to continue to enhance our resilience to these environmental risks and challenges.

Our environmental sustainability action plan (2020 - 2023) was developed as part of our immediate response to these global environmental risks and commitment to embed good environmental practices across all areas of our operation. Specifically, our six-year 30% carbon reduction target against our 2018/19 baseline is our immediate response to the global risks associated with climate change.

Our long-term environmental priorities are to continue to improve our environmental performance and play an active role in supporting the delivery of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). We will also continue to engage with all relevant stakeholders and like-minded organisation to make our planet a better place to live.

We are a global university with students and staff from over 160 countries. The delivery of our environmental sustainability action plan will be aligned with our 2030 Strategy and our Vision to open the doors of opportunity by combining our world-leading strengths in both education and research.

Our corporate social responsibility priorities and environmental sustainability objectives will continue to underpin the way we deliver our teaching, our research, our collaborations and partnerships, and other activities, as well as how we engage with our stakeholders and add value to our communities.
