Sustainability at the University of Greenwich University of Greenwich

We recognise that meeting sustainable development objectives is crucial to our students, our planet and ultimately our future success.

The university has a strategic approach and tools that enable us to focus on important areas. We reduce our negative impacts using sustainable development as a driver to add value, opportunities and benefits. We employ sustainability principles not only in our estates and operations (for example, reducing our energy and waste generation). We also work to integrate sustainability into our curriculum and research work. Almost all sustainability impacts are because of human behaviours, so we work with our staff, students and our wider community to improve their awareness and actions.

Our Sustainability Policy sets out the direction, the areas we focus upon and the goals we seek. Strategies and policies support this:

Our Sustainability Management Board has responsibilities to help develop and implement our strategy and to help achieve our goals.

We work with our Students Union and students in a range of ways to help them to understand and apply sustainability in their learning, research and lives.

Our sustainability work is extensive and we would like to share this with you. Visit our sustainability information and support hub to explore what we are doing, and to find information about how you can learn and help us all move towards our sustainable vision.
