Environmental Management at Estates

The success of Ecoversity has not only embedded sustainable principles and practices across the entire institution it has delivered a wide range of positive environmental impacts.

We have developed this web site to allow open access to data and strategies related to our improved environmental performance and we hope the sites provides all the information that you require.

However should you have any further queries or would like to provide feedback relating to the website please contact us.

Estates and Facilities - We are All the Sustainability Team!

Our team is broad reaching, specific members of staff not mentioned here are delivering sustainability improvements across our operation all the time as standard practice.  Be it installing LED lights, looking at new food waste disposal possibilities or investigating greener fleet vehicles.  Sustainability is in our DNA!

Our sustainability budget

We hold no core sustainability budget, but there are many budgets that are accessed for various projects depending on their deliverables.  The utility budget funds energy improvements with a good payback, the environment levy makes green travel improvements etc.  This is not a barrier to achievement but rather ensures all measures offer true value for money.  We have also had major success in accessing external funding through Salix, Revolving Green Fund, Local Sustainable Transport Fund and more.

Funding for energy saving or environmental projects can be made available to staff and students. Please contact us at for more information.
