This is incredibly important as it forms part of our civic responsibility to measure and reduce our carbon footprint, as well as deliver social impact and value.
Taking the right path
We have a clear commitment to taking a responsible and sustainable path in the way we operate and educate. We actively reduce our waste and energy usage as well as our carbon footprint.
We support and encourage diversity and inclusion and promote understanding and collaboration. We take steps to measure and increase our social impact, which enables us to deliver our civic responsibilities and commitments.
Small changes make a big difference Our role in the University’s sustainable strategy is to deliver responsible events that make a big impact, without costing the earth. Here are just a few ways that we’re helping to make a difference.
As part of our commitment to sustainability, we’re working towards ISO 20121 accreditation. Created by the International Organisation for Standards (ISO), this is a voluntary international standard for sustainable event management. We hope to have achieved this by summer 2022.
Through ISO 20121, we are:
- Learning to manage the associated social, economic and environmental impacts of our events and conferences.
- Working with teams across the University to improve sustainability throughout our entire event management cycle and supply chains.
- Building a better understanding of sustainability to ensure your event is sustainable from start to finish.
