The Green League 2010

The University has for the fourth year in succession improved its position substantially in the People and Planet Green League table, published on June 10th. Whilst we remained just inside the 2:2 category by just 1 point, we improved on last year's position to move from 70th to 56th place.

This reflects the significant work that many people have undertaken over the past year. We fall down in the areas of Carbon management and Environmental Auditing particularly. However these are areas in which we are already taking substantive steps to improve our performance.

The University is enrolled on a 9 month Carbon Trust led programme HECM6 to develop a robust Carbon Management Plan, which will begin with an internal launch event at the end of June. We have also been working on the 1st phase of the development of an Environmental Management System, EcoCampus.

For more information on these and other initiatives please see the current edition of Watch This Space. Further communications will be sent out shortly to give you the chance to play your part in developing our Carbon Management Plan.
