“Our students care deeply about sustainability and environmental issues. The SU are delighted that the University has been recognised for leading the way in supporting students’ development and understanding of sustainability, empowering them to develop solutions both in and out of their curriculum.”

(Students Union President Imaani Mitchell)

This is a really special achievement for us on this critically important agenda, especially as the changes have been led by students and staff across our university community. The People and Planet league has focused minds on who really walks their talk on sustainability.”

(Dr Alex Ryan, Director of Sustainability)

We see sustainability as an integral part of our mission, to prepare our students well for the world they will inherit. The fact that it is now our students and young people across the country who see the urgency of this agenda, and who are leading campaigning for radical change, only serves to reinforce our commitment.”

(Vice Chancellor, Stephen Marston)
