Achievement of Commitment

The University of Salford’s sustainability commitments are outlined in our Environmental Sustainability Policy Statement.

How this will be achieved

- Ensuring sustainability is at the core of the Campus Masterplan development and sustainable construction practices are embedded into plans for refurbishments and new developments;
- Developing a travel plan which encourages alternative methods of transport to single-occupancy car journeys;
- Proactively working with our local partners to align sustainable practices;
- Protecting the natural habitats and encouraging biodiversity on University managed land and of that surrounding, particularly Peel Park;
- Developing an Environmental Management System in line with the EcoCampus programme and ISO 14001 to drive continual improvement;
- Communicating the environmental sustainability policy and strategy to staff, students and other stakeholders and raise awareness amongst these groups of their own environmental responsibilities and opportunities for environmental improvements;
- Reviewing this policy and supporting strategy to ensure it is fit for purpose, as a minimum annually;
- Ensuring adequate resources to realise this vision of environmental sustainability statement.
