As a rapidly growing University with over 14,000 students and 1,500 staff, we know that our activities will have an impact on the environment.
This is why we’re working to become a more sustainable organisation, and using our resources to make a positive contribution to environmental sustainability; through student engagement, biodiversity enhancement and research.
Creating Sustainable Futures
Our sustainability strategy sets out our ambition for sustainability at the University of Lincoln and introduces our priorities up until 2021.
The three key themes that form the basis of our sustainability strategy are:
- Sustainable Campus
- Sustainable Culture
- Collaboration for Change
Our new Sustainability Strategy is under review during the University Strategic Plan consultation. Our Annual Sustainability Report 2020-2021 has now been published. Find the link below:
A Sustainable Culture
As a University looking to the future, we aim to develop our approach around environmental sustainability and provide our students and staff with opportunities to help tackle environmental issues through volunteering opportunities, operational changes or their own research. By engaging our students, local communities and partner organisations in such initiatives, we can make a meaningful contribution to both our local and global environment.
There are a variety of projects taking place, which you can get involved in; from our edible campus project, Hedgehog Friendly Campus, or our Climate Action Festival, to walk/cycle to work days or the annual ‘Brayford Pool clean-up’ day.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved. Or you can contact us on social media:
Standards are Important
We have achieved certification to ISO 14001, for Environmental Management, and ISO 50001 for Energy Management. We’ve also been awarded EcoCampus Platinum Award for our Environmental Management System (EMS).
Our current environment policy can be found on our Policies & Procedures webpage.
