The University’s efforts to fight the climate crisis have been recognised with an international award. The International Sustainable Campus Network named the University the winner of its ‘whole systems approach’ award. The prize recognises work to reduce carbon emissions and embed sustainability into research, teaching and governance, operations, and partnerships. It comes just weeks after the University was ranked 29th in the world for its contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
