‘A major milestone’ – University achieves EcoCampus Platinum

Published: 11 September 2014

The University now sits alongside some of the world’s leading companies – including Rolls Royce and Lloyd’s Register – having reached the international standard for environmental management.

The institution has been awarded EcoCampus Platinum, following almost three years’ work to implement the environmental management system (EMS) and an extensive audit in July 2014.

Platinum is the equivalent to the international standard for environmental management systems – ISO 14001. The EMS builds on many years of work to improve the University’s environmental performance, including the commissioning of the Combined Heat and Power plant on Highfield Campus and the running of Uni-link buses.
