The University of Birmingham

University-wide sustainability review

A University-wide sustainability review was established to ensure that sustainable practices were fully integrated across all Departments and areas of expenditure. The overall objective was to fully embed sustainability and ensure sharing of best practice across the campus.

The review led to the implementation of a Sustainability Strategy developed by a cross functional stakeholder group. This enabled us to fully embed sustainability within our business processes, recruitment procedures, student engagement and through the Supply Chain.

The University has been externally recognised for its sustainable initiatives and aims to link with wider public sector bodies to share and disseminate best practice.
