Environment and sustainability

Being sustainable is the only sensible choice in today’s world. Birmingham is working to reduce its negative environmental and social effects plus maximise the positive impacts our research and teaching have on the world. 

We are committed to improving our performance and engaging with the University community. Our environmental and other policies state our overall aims and objectives. 

There are a number of different ways staff and students can be sustainable whilst working and studying at the University of Birmingham. Here is some information about what the university currently does to keep environmental impact to a minimum and how you can do your bit for the planet.
