The current Sustainability Policy was adopted by SMT and signed by the Vice-Chancellor Professor Richard B. Davies on 19th March 2012. As part of our ISO14001 certification, the policy is reviewed annually and is included in the annual Environmental Management Review with the SHE (Safety, Health and Environment) Committee chaired by the University Registrar. The policy was last reviewed in October, 2014. Swansea University is committed to delivering the objectives and goals of the Sustainability Policy and has a detailed sustainability strategy, which can be viewed here: Sustainability Strategy 2016 - 2020
Embedding sustainability in the University's daily operations and teaching is at the heart of the institution's quest to achieve excellence in every aspect. To achieve this stated goal staff and students alike are encouraged to become active sustainability practitioners.
