UWTSD First Class in Sustainability

29.11.2016

UWTSD is celebrating having retained its First Class status in the People & Planet league!

People & Planet University League is an independent league, run by the student campaigning organisation People & Planet, which ranks UK Universities on their environmental and social justice performance.

The League scores Universities on a range of sustainability factors including “Education for Sustainable Development”, “Environmental Auditing & Management Systems” and “Waste & Recycling”, and awards First Class to Universities that are doing the most to tackle sustainability issues.

UWTSD placed 27th out of 150 UK Universities this year, climbing from 113th in the League in 2013, and scored full marks in “Policy & Strategy” and “Staff and Student Engagement”!

Tom Yearley, Head of Sustainability Delivery, thanked staff and students for their hard work “Our First Class status is a testament of our commitment to sustainability and the dedication of our staff and students to embed sustainability in to our campus, curriculum, culture and communities.”
