Team NTU “Embraces Sustainability” supporting staff and challenging students to tackle the global and local!
NTU Embraces Sustainability institution-wide. Third in People & Planet, fifth in UI GreenMetric, LiFE Index (Gold) with one Purple and two Green Flags!
Whether it’s having more City cycle than car parking spaces, replacing 10 single-use plastics, using gamification or practical sustainability challenges, we embrace positive action for sustainability in a fun and meaningful way.
Our robust sustainability governance model has high level, interconnected sustainability fora for academic schools, research, operations and the SU, each chaired by an Exec member. Our Sustainable Development and Green Academy Teams work with these to align ambitious decisions and strong actions. All students connect deeply with one or more SDGs and 5,000 achieved our Sustainability in Practice Certificate.
Social sustainability matters too: our flagship Success for All programme optimises student outcomes and addresses disparities – we’ve closed the BAME attainment gap with 83% in graduate-level employment. Sustainability is working for good at NTU!
