Bangor University achieves top 10 of global green league
Bangor University has been ranked amongst the greenest universities in the world in a prestigious international league table of environmentally friendly universities.
The Welsh university was ranked tenth in the world for its commitment to sustainability for the third year in a row, and is one of four UK universities appearing in the Top 10 of the UI Green Metric.
The Universitas Indonesia League Table assessed 780 universities from 85 countries, looking at their sustainability and environmental management. As well as retaining its top 10 position in the world, Bangor was also placed first in Wales for environmental friendliness by these rankings.
This league table uses six measures to rank the universities, and Bangor University achieved the full marks available for education, reflecting its commitment to sustainability education and research. Its focus on reducing waste and recycling is also recognised in the league table, ranking highly.
Speaking about this latest achievement, Bangor University’s Director of Sustainability, Dr Einir Young, comments, “This is a campus-wide team effort. Driving environmental improvements and resource efficiencies throughout the organisation is a challenge without end and one that requires all of us to join in. We recognise that sound environmental management is essential to our aim of developing and applying innovative ways of integrating consideration for sustainability and the well-being of future generations into everything we do. Through our research, teaching, student experience and collaboration with the community we are contributing positively to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals”.
