Sustainability

Research

We have an international reputation for research expertise in the field of sustainability and are making a lasting impact by finding solutions to major global challenges.

Learning and teaching resources

The Institute for Sustainability, Newcastle University Library and University Sustainability Advisor Dr Sue Haile have worked together to produce the Sustainability Resources Guide, which contains useful resources and links to information for learning, teaching and research relating to many aspects of sustainability.

You will also find up to date information relating to a number of case studies that are used for teaching and examples of sustainability in the curriculum from all Faculties in the University.

Sustainability on campus

Green Impact logoSustainability is at the heart of the University’s campus and operations. Our Environmental Management System is certified to both ISO14001 and EcoCampus Platinum and ensures that we are continually improving our environmental performance. From the introduction of bike racks and recycling facilities which you can see every time you stroll through the campus, to the upgrading of heating systems in our buildings and use of water saving fixtures in our halls of residence - there’s lots happening to make our campus more sustainable.

The Sustainable Campus pages contain information on key areas of environmental sustainability:

  • Biodiversity
  • Carbon
  • Energy
  • Procurement
  • Transport
  • Waste
  • Water

including how we are performing and how you can get involved. The sustainability policy is also available online.
