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.

Accessing EMS documentation

All EMS operational documentation can be downloaded by following the links below:

EMS documents (including system documents) are stored electronically on a system called EQMS.  To access this, please follow the instructions here. They explain how to access and use the EQMS software. Using your usual university login details, you can log into the system here.  If you have any problems with using the EQMS system, please email sustainability@leeds.ac.uk

Once in the system the EMS documentation is available on the left of the screen via the document tree. Essential documentation is within the Environmental Management System folder.
