The University is committed to supporting the global sustainability agenda for a strong, healthy, and just society living within environmental limits in everything that it does. Central to this commitment is the ambition to create an environment and culture in which all student and staff members have the opportunity to develop and use the skills and understanding required to contribute to global sustainability and health both at the University and throughout their private lives.  

A holistic approach to sustainability across all aspects of the University enables continuous, innovative, genuine, and embedded performance improvements which have been successful to date.  

The approach has enhanced the University’s reputation externally, and encouraged faculties, services, students, and wider stakeholders to work in partnership.
