Sustainability Action Plan

The issues of social, environmental and economic sustainability are interlinked, so our approach to solving them must be too. The Students’ Union believes that education and research have a fundamental and unique role in creating a world with sustainability at its core.

Utilities Usage

The Students' Union at UWE is making a concerted effort to be less wasteful and more efficient in order to reduce our carbon emissions and contribute to collective targets (UWE's institutional carbon targets; the Climate Change Act; the Paris agreement). Each year we produced a report looking back at our performance over the past three academic years.
