Frequently Asked Questions

Who makes decisions on Sustainability?

The prioritisation and delivery of our Sustainability Strategy is facilitated by our Head of Sustainability and the Institutional Lead for Sustainability. Both have the position and expertise that make them perfectly placed to lead on achieving our ambitions as a University.

The Head of Sustainability and Institutional Lead are supported in these ambitions by a Sustainability Steering Group (SSG). This group meets bimonthly, with senior representatives from across the University, including Campus Services, Estates (including a Decarbonisation and Sustainability Manager), The Guild of Students, Research, and Communications.
