Environmental Sustainability committee

The Environmental Sustainability Committee is responsible for the development and implementation of environmental sustainability across the University.

This includes ensuring there is an integrated, proactive approach to environmental sustainability across the University that is informed by best practice, and supports the achievement of the University’s values, objectives and strategy. The Committee will work in close partnership with other parts of the University’s governance structures.

The Committee also administers the Environment Initiative Fund that enables students and staff to bid for funding for sustainability projects.
