At Swansea University, our Sustainability Policy is endorsed by the Vice Chancellor and is the core of our Environmental Management System. This is supported by our recently expanded team and a dedicated budget that increases annually.

Our policy outlines our commitment to ensuring our research, teaching activities and operations promote and support a sustainable future for all, whilst protecting the environment.

Supporting the policy, is our comprehensive Sustainability Strategy 2016-2020. The strategy demonstrates our commitment to the University having a net positive impact on sustainable development in how we operate our business.

Our Sustainability Strategy focuses on eight main sustainability opportunities identified for the University:

For each of the eight strategy opportunities, there is an associated series of objectives and targets, identified to deliver the prescribed aim.

We update our objectives and targets each year, building on the previous year’s activities and achievements.

The University's Senior Leadership Team review our sustainability performance and strategy development each year through the Corporate Responsibility Committee.
