Telling our stakeholders about the journey we take to achieve our sustainability goals is incredibly important to us! It helps us articulate our performance, vision and strategy, and is a great way of engaging our stakeholders.
We are especially pleased to be highly commended for our most recent Environment Sustainability Statement 2014 – 2015 at this years Green Gown Awards from the Environmental Association of Universities and Colleges.
We have transformed our approach toward sustainability reporting over a number of years, and have worked hard to communicate complex data effectively – to share our performance and achievements with our staff, students, and the rest of the Higher Education (HE) sector. 86% of Manchester Met’s students now think that we are an environmentally sustainable University!
We take a performance-based approach, reporting transparently- telling our audience about the good as well as the bad, and communicate robust data that demonstrates our progress and backs our performance claims.
We see it as vital in achieving a sustainable HE sector- nationally and internationally. Sustainability reporting enhances our accountability for our impacts, and helps to drive progress in the sector.
