About us

Sustainability

We look to embed sustainability into all aspects of the University of Southampton’s work - from saving energy and reducing waste, to boosting biodiversity and encouraging better travel habits.

Students take part in our annual BioBlitz event.

Throughout the year, our students and staff work together to deliver innovative events that encourage sustainable behaviours, raise the profile of environmental issues and create socially responsible graduates.

We have set ambitious sustainability targets on our campuses, and our work to manage the impact of the University's activities has been certified to the international standard - ISO 14001:2015.

As one of the world’s leading research institutions, our students and staff are addressing the causes of climate change and developing technical and social advances to help us adapt to a changing environment.
