Success in the UI Green Metric table!

Leicester University came 8th in the UK, and 39th world wide in the UI Green Metric

Entering the UI Green Metric table has given us insight into our environmental status quo which we did not have before - such as the percentage of land taken up by grass, trees, and concrete across campus. The metric measures the energy usage, waste management, water usage, transportation, green spaces and levels of sustainability in education of universities world wide.

It was our first year entering the table, and involved a lot of hard work and collaboration from other departments such as waste and estates - so a huge thanks goes to everyone who helped.

These new sources of information will help us to target our improvements, and be more self-aware as an institution. If we continue to push for more sustainability across campus, maybe next year we can come first!
