Environmental Sustainability Policy 2016

As a leading award winning University for Sustainability we have a responsibility to ensure our business activities do not create adverse environmental and social impacts.

The new policy outlines and updates our key commitments within our Environmental Sustainability Policy 2016. These commitments go beyond legal compliance, to incorporate environmental sustainability into our Estates and Operations and to enhance our positive impact, by embedding Education for Sustainable Development in our learning, teaching, research and development activities, as well as culture and leadership.

Our Policy provides a frameworks for establishing environmental objectives and targets, and key performance indicators, within our Environmental Sustainability Strategy such as reducing and reusing 85% of our waste by 2020.

Manchester Met will deliver this Policy through the continued implementation and improvement of an Environmental Management System, certified to ISO 140001:2015 standard.
