Our Environmental Management System (EMS) gives us a structured framework for managing and minimising the impact of our operations on the environment.
The Environmental Management System is implemented by using the phased approach of the EcoCampus scheme, which provides a structured approach to work towards the ISO14001:2015 standard. In 2016, Manchester Met were the first University to achieve the new and more challenging ISO14001:2015 standard.
Our EMS incorporates all of the University's business activities, including our estates and operations, leadership and governance, learning, teaching and research and engagement activities.
We have set some ambitious targets and outlined the key steps the University must take in order to become one of the most environmentally in the world.
Our Environmental Sustainability policy and strategy form part of our EMS framework, setting out our strategic aims, objectives, targets and key performance indicators.
Our Environmental Sustainability Policy sets out our key commitments, and provides a framework for establishing our environmental aims, objectives and targets.
Our Environmental Sustainability Strategy 2014–2020 sets out the actions MMU needs to take to achieve our aims and become a Sustainable University.
It's vital that staff, students, Trade Union representatives have the opportunity to engage in the development and on-going review of our policies, strategies and management plans. If you would like to comment or give feedback, or be involved in the development of our policies and plans, please contact the Environment Team.
