As the University of York is a prestigious Russell Group University with over 16,000 students and 3,000 staff we are aware that we have the capability to ensure environmental sustainability through our internationally recognised academic teaching, research programmes, and campus based activities.
The University is in a privileged position in that we closely interact with a wide range of society and industry, and therefore can deliver extensive environmental contributions that can have positive effects locally, nationally and globally. Drawing on our fundamental values we will undertake activities in an environmentally sustainable manner to achieve significant short-term outcomes as well as longer-term indirect impact.
The University is committed to maximising its positive impact and minimising its negative environmental impact in order to help develop a more sustainable world.
