Sustainability is embedded within everything we do at Leeds and needs every one of us to play a role.
We run a range of participation schemes to support staff at all stages of their sustainability journey. If you want to make an impact as a member of staff, a great starting point is to join our Sustainability Community on Teams to access peer support and information on embedding sustainability in your work.
Our network of sustainability ambassadors are known as Staff Sustainability Architects. They have a crucial role in building sustainability initiatives across campus, with a portion of time dedicated to delivering sustainability initiatives.
And each year we also recruit passionate students in paid part time roles as Student Sustainability Architects, where they gain valuable experience leading sustainability projects here on campus.
Our flagship Blueprint programme involves the Sustainability Service working closely with a team, service, school or faculty to co-create bespoke five year sustainability plans that contribute directly towards our Climate Plan and other sustainability targets.
