The University’s first Annual Sustainability Report showcases the progress made on our strategic commitments to being a sustainable University to our wide range of stakeholders.
Our approach to sustainability is holistic, and commitments range from creating and supporting proactive, collaborative networks to integrating sustainability into learning programmes, amongst many others. The Report establishes our baseline for key areas of performance within these themes, alongside highlighting key initiatives and project achievements. The coverage of the Report aims to ensure that we look at our whole impact, rather than just those areas that can be easily measured.
The Report tracks our progress against the commitments we have made, highlighting future priorities to ensure that we continue to make a material impact and reach our overarching objective that sustainability will be at the heart of what we do, with all our students and staff knowing what sustainability is.
Top 3 learnings:
1 It is important to tell the whole story and monitor our total impact. However, it will be difficult to measure absolutely everything that contributes towards the sustainability impact your institutions has. It is ok to use a mixture of numbers and stories.
2 Engage with others, sustainability is about collaboration and your annual report should reflect this.
3 Tell a story, keep it engaging and do not be afraid to be creative.
