Environment and Energy


All staff and students are invited to get involved in tackling environmental and sustainability issues in their places of work and study. To help raise the profile of key issues of importance to the University community, we hold regular 'spotlight on' months. These act as a focus for environmental communications, events and activities across the University.

What to expect from 'Spotlight on' months

During 'spotlight on' months, we'll shift the focus to one key topic throughout one intensive period packed with information, advice and support. In our Greenlines newsletter, we'll have information and articles on the 'spotlight on' theme. We'll also encourage Environment & Energy Coordinators and Green Impact teams to get involved by running their own events, and will send out ideas and tips on doing this via a 'bi-weekly digest'. We also produce posters and guidance on each topic, which can additionally be found through our dedicated 'spotlight on' web pages. Each of these contain a host of tips, ideas and further resources aimed at tackling these important issues:
