About the Sustainability Service

Sustainability is at the heart of the University of Leeds. It’s a core value and something that influences every decision we make and every action we take.

As the Sustainability Service, we’re an important part of the wider University community. Great things happen when we work together, and we make sure our expertise and facilities are available to all so everyone can tackle the world’s global challenges.

We use the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to help frame and guide our activity. And everything we do is inclusive, making sure everyone’s voice is heard and considered along the way.
