Progressing Campus Sustainability
The University joins the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) as part of our commitment to evolving as a sustainable institution.
The International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) provides a global forum to support leading colleges, universities, and corporate campuses in the exchange of information, ideas, and best practices for achieving sustainable campus operations and integrating sustainability in research and teaching.
Vice-Chancellor, Sir Alan Langlands says: The University is proud to be an international university which has sustainability at the heart of what we do. Being part of the ISCN will allow us to further enhance our dialogue and knowledge about best practice in sustainability and to be part of a global education community working to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2009, the ISCN partnered with the Global University Leaders Forum (GULF), a World Economic Forum initiative bringing together the heads of 26 top global universities, to develop the Sustainable Campus Charter. It organises campus sustainability into 3 core principles, requires a commitment at the highest level of the institution, and includes annual reporting on sustainability goals, initiatives, and performance.
Secretary of the ISCN Board, Bernd Kasemir, says: We are delighted to welcome the University into the ISCN and look forward to providing a platform for international value exchange and partnership on campus sustainability.
