The university has released the Annual Sustainability Report for 2019-2020, which shares performance and celebrates achievements across all aspects of sustainability in the life of the university.

This is the fourth report on delivery of the University’s Sustainability Strategy 2017-2022. It reflects the action of staff, students and partners who contributed to this year’s progress.

Top stories include:
