About us


One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century is to balance social and economic goals while protecting the earth’s natural environment and resources.

Here at UWL, we’re working hard to meet this challenge and to embed a culture of sustainability across our University.

We’ve developed a comprehensive Sustainability Strategy to deliver on the commitment in our Strategic Plan to ‘improve significantly environmental credentials’ by 2018.

The pages below provide further detail about sustainability activities at UWL, including the steps we’re taking to make our own operations as sustainable as possible, how sustainability ideas are being taught in our courses, and how staff and students can get involved in environmental activities.
