Our University Strategy states our commitment to optimising our contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our research, teaching, campus and operations. We are a signatory of the SDG Accord and we continue to develop our portfolio of sustainability initiatives. Our Environmental Sustainability Policy considers the impact our activities have on the wider environment and aims to minimise this impact. View the latest Annual Sustainability Report. With our print we use FSC certified paper. FSC certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards. Products made with wood and paper from FSC forests.
