Our Sustainable Future

Our Sustainable FutureOur new environmental sustainability strategy, Our Sustainable Future, has been approved by the Board of Governors. The strategy will launch in the autumn and run for five years, up to 2028. It describes how we will reduce our carbon footprint, promote sustainability in our teaching and learning and research and innovation, and engage and support our community in the transition to a more sustainable society.

Our strategy sets out the practical steps we are committing to, where it is already clear how best to protect and enhance our environment. We commit to transparency in reporting our progress towards our sustainability goals. We also outline our commitment to collaboration and deep enquiry where the solutions are less obvious, the challenges more complex or we need to be part of a broader shift to make the necessary changes possible.

Our Sustainable Future aims to ensure we do all we can to protect and enhance our environment for staff, students and future generations. If you’d like to hear more about the strategy and what it will mean for you, please contact es@manchester.ac.uk
