The University of the Arts London (UAL) has achieved its first carbon target and can set realistic broader sustainability targets based on the monitoring and reporting systems put in place. These have overcome the challenges of a multi-site university to achieve ISO 50001 accreditation of the Energy Management System.

This then provides a credible and inspiration basis for the incorporation of sustainability targets into the university’s core business practices. It also provides an accessible insight into the sustainability performance of the university, for example, through monthly public reporting.

This provides a way for students and staff at all levels to be engaged with and take responsibility for, sustainability actions at UAL.
