OUR COMMITMENT TO A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
This has been another successful year of initiatives, innovations, research and policy development on sustainability. Whilst the University still faces a number of external and internal challenges, our commitment to sustainability remains as strong as ever.
We have forged some important partnerships this year. For example, we are working closely with Leeds City Council and a range of public and private organisations to tackle the city’s climate challenges. The development of the Leeds Climate Commission and our Living Lab projects are particularly influential and will enable us to use carefully developed research to respond to global challenges.
This year’s Annual Sustainability Report aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. These are helping to shape our programme of work across the University as we play our part in tackling global grand challenges.
As ever, our staff and students remain at the heart of everything we do. I am always impressed with their creativity, innovation and sheer hard work which helps the University of Leeds to become a more sustainable Institution.
I hope you enjoy reading this report. We are incredibly proud of the part we play in creating sustainable futures and the University remains committed to continuous improvement on sustainability.
