Sustainability Initiative

Sustainability Initiative, The University of Birmingham
A University wide sustainability review was carried out to fully embed sustainability within business processes, recruitment procedures, student engagement and the Supply Chain.

This required working cross functionally across and outside the University, identifying and overcoming key challenges and gaining senior level buy-in, to ensure that the sustainability initiative was thoroughly scoped and designed with end-user benefit in mind.

The University has received external recognition for sustainable procurement and is working with wider public sector bodies to share and disseminate best practice. We recognise that our students will be the key shapers of a sustainable planet in the future.
