This is the seventh Sustainability Report for the University of Worcester. It describes the institution’s most significant environmental aspects and how these are managed and mitigated in order to fulfil our commitment to continuous environmental and sustainability improvement.

This year the Sustainability Committee undertook a series of workshops to review our major aspects and materiality to ensure we are concentrating our resources and focus in the areas that are the most significant for the University. We also began a second visioning exercise with governors, students, staff and the community to ensure our strategic aims remain relevant to all our stakeholders across the three areas of campus, community and curriculum.

The University has a long-standing commitment to act in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. The current Strategic Plan (2013-18) includes a commitment to make an outstanding contribution to economic, social and environmental sustainability.

Top 3 learnings

1 Include students, staff, governors and the local community in developing your vision.

2 We can’t do this on our own – be open to collaboration and collaborative models.

3 Create many scaffolding opportunities, so colleagues across the Students’ Union and University can connect with their discipline/area of expertise.
