Environment and Sustainability

The University of Hertfordshire is recognised as a leader in terms of environmental management and performance, and is committed to embedding continuous environmental improvement into its business model and ethos. As such ‘positively improving our impact on the environment’ is one of the objectives set out under ‘Sustainability’ theme in the University’s Strategic Plan 2015-2020.

Our Environment and Sustainability Team, who are part of the Centre for Sustainable Communities, actively work to make the University of Hertfordshire a more sustainable place to live, work and study. The University achieved and has maintained the international ISO 14001 standard for its Environmental Management System (EMS) since the end of 2012.

Part of the EMS is to have an Environmental Policy in which top management have stated a set of principles outlining how the University intends to support and enhance its environmental performance, which is reported on annually within the Environment and Sustainability Annual Report.
