Our commitment to Sustainable Development

In recognition of our ongoing commitment to managing and continually improving our environmental performance, Manchester Metropolitan University has recently been recertified to the international environmental management standard ISO14001:2015.

“The University should be proud of its commitment to Sustainable Development and its goal of remaining a leading sustainable university.” Lead Auditor, Richard Walsh

In February 2016, Manchester Met was the first university in the UK to attain certification to the new and more challenging ISO standard. Richard said: “Once again the University has undergone a successful recertification assessment that has resulted in no negative findings. There is a clear and demonstrable desire to drive forward the sustainability agenda in all areas visited.”

Manchester Met has developed an innovative approach to its Environmental Management framework in Higher Education by incorporating sustainable development throughout its teaching and research in addition to its estate and management operations.”

Manchester Met’s Chief Operating Officer, Karen Moore said “I am delighted that our Environmental Management System has been re-certified. It is a significant achievement for the University and demonstrates great collaboration between our academic faculties and Professional Services departments. We are committed to improving our environmental performance to support the achievement of our 2020 Environmental Sustainability Strategy.
