Our Environmental Management System (EMS) is externally accredited to ISO 14001: 2015 (click here to view our certificate) and supports our Environmental Policy. It includes all activities conducted on the city campus, on our residential sites and sports and conferencing facilities. Our Environmental Policy ensures we remain committed to conducting our activities and operations in an environmentally responsible manner to reflect best environmental practice. A training module is available to all staff and can be accessed here.
