Since 2007 the University Green League has ranked universities on their environmental and ethical performance annually. The league, which is managed by the student group People and Planet, compiles HESA data and legally regulated freedom of information requests to collate the results. Universities are asked about their environmental and ethical commitments and actions, and in return receive points based on their responses.

In this blog post, Carbon Credentials discusses the journey, why league respondents were declined and asks the question: How significant is the Green League?

Carbon Credentials was the Headline Sponsor of the 2015 Annual Conference.
