How ethical and sustainable are UK universities?

18 July 2019   (0 Comments)

Gloucestershire, Manchester Metropolitan and Nottingham Trent are among the highest-scoring universities in a new league table which ranks higher education establishments on their ethical and environmental ambitions and actions.

Published by green campaign group People & Planet, the rankings cover the environmental efforts of 154 UK institutions across the areas of their green policy; sustainability team; auditing; carbon management; carbon reduction; energy sourcing; waste and recycling; education and water management.

The league table also takes four ethical factors into account, namely ethical investment; worker rights; food sourcing and engaging stakeholders.

Each university is given a score out of 100 for each of these 11 factors. An average of these figures is then generated, giving the institution an overall percentage score.
