Environmental Sustainability

Nine out of ten people in the world currently breathe polluted air and almost 80% of the world’s plastic ends up in landfill or the natural environment. It’s a global tragedy that we are not looking after our planet. It is something that you cannot escape, and action is long overdue.

The University of Bolton is proud to be working towards solutions for a better life. A sustainability committee was launched during 2019 and the University is constantly evolving its practices for the good of the students, staff and community. Together, with small changes we can make a large enough impact to change the future of sustainability and respond to and manage climate change.

The Environmental Sustainability Lead for the University said: “As one of the largest organisations in the Greater Manchester region, the University recognises the environmental impacts from its activities, routine operations, infrastructure development and its influence over wider community regionally, nationally and globally.

The University will be using the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as their prime objectives and will plan and work to achieve the goals in alignment with regional and national timelines.”

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals were set in 2015 as a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all" and these are:

The Environmental Sustainability Lead added: 

“This policy will outline the University’s commitments in managing its impacts to ensure alignment with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and embed these as overarching principles of our corporate strategy and culture, supported by our Environmental Sustainability Committee; a sub-committee reporting to the University Executive Board.”
