Managing Our Working Environment

Swansea University recognises that only by analysing and regularly auditing our different environmental impact can we; set institutional targets, assess priorities and monitor trends, as well as identify performance improvements and gaps. With this in mind, the University has committed to a process of Environmental Management (EMS), the externally verified ISO 14001:2015 and EcoCampus accreditation.

The scope of the EMS covers the whole university estate – our 4 campuses and residential villages at Singleton Park, Bay Campus, Hendrefoilan Student Village and St David’s, Carmarthen. The scope also covers all areas of business, academic faculties, and operations.

Who is Responsible?

We are all responsible for implementing the EMS, this includes:

  • The University Senior Leadership Team providing leadership around sustainability
  • The Sustainability Team managing the system and offering support to university staff and students
  • All staff and students being aware of how they can support the University’s sustainability objectives, targets and procedures
