University of Nottingham highly ranked globally for sustainability
The University of Nottingham has been placed fourth in the world for university sustainability in recent global rankings.
The 2019 UI Green Metric World University Rankings named the University of Nottingham as one of the most sustainable universities in the world after reviewing almost 800 universities. Speaking about this achievement, Development and Sustainability Director at the University of Nottingham, Andy Nolan, enthuses: “The University of Nottingham is delighted at this recognition which is a tribute to the hard work of all of us at the institution. Our global research program is developing renewable sources of energy, green propulsion systems, climate-resistant crops and sustainable food supplies. Our Carbon Neutral Laboratory in the UK is a model for future scientific facilities.”
Explaining further, Mr Nolan says, “We have fully divested from investments in fossil fuels, are cutting single use plastic from our campuses, and careful recycling and reuse policies means that 99 per cent of our waste is diverted from landfill. Our new University Strategy published yesterday, commits the University to joining the city of Nottingham in its ambitions to become carbon-neutral by 2028.”
The UI Green Metric – an initiative of Universitas Indonesia – ranks universities throughout the world across a range of areas, including energy use, waste and water management, transport and teaching.
