Policies, strategy and progress

Click below to read our annually updated Environment & Sustainability Policy which drives our strategic direction to a sustainable university, and is a central part of our externally verified ISO14001 Environmental Management System.

We are proud that as part of our commitment to continual improvement of our environment and sustainability work, we report and discuss our progress on this Policy and associated targets on an annual basis to our University Executive Board (UEB) (the most senior university governance board) which is chaired by our President and Vice-Chancellor Prof Mark E Smith. The most recent report took place in March 2023. Not only is this a requirement of our ISO14001 EMS, it also demonstrates how embedded our environmental and sustainability work is within our university governance systems. 

In August 2023, we achieved recertification for a further 3 years against the ISO14001:2015 standard. This also brought SUSU within the scope of the EMS certificate for the first time.

The University's Environment & Sustainability Policy has been updated for 2023.
