In our Sustainability Strategy, we were clear that we want to be a University with a reputation for outstanding performance on sustainability; and one that challenges the status quo and is renowned for its open, welcoming environment. This remains at our core and we are taking great strides to make it a reality.

I am incredibly proud of the work that is taking place at the University of Leeds. From our hire bikes I spot on campus and across Leeds, to the outstanding research we are doing on climate change and social equality, it’s great to see the whole remit of sustainability being covered. This is testament to the hard work and creativity of everyone involved.
