Achievement of Commitment

How this will be achieved

The University of Gloucestershire has demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainability over time and made a distinguished contribution to this area as reflected in University sustainability rankings, index assessments and awards. It has recently launched an ambitious plan to upscale the impact of its efforts in this area. This 5 year plan is embedded within the University’s Strategic Plan and continues to build on efforts to embed sustainability into the DNA of the University. The University of Gloucestershire is committed to transparency in all activities undertaken including those associated with sustainability. As well as submitting to external audits through ISO14001 and rankings systems such as the Green League, the University undertakes regular internal environmental audits and publishes reviews of its sustainability performance in its Annual Report.
