Environment and Sustainability

Birmingham City University is committed to sustainability and improving our environmental performance while encouraging and embedding a sustainable way of life for students and staff. As an educational establishment, we have a responsibility not only to educate our students and staff on more sustainable practices, but also to lead by example by improving our own performance.

The University has developed an Environmental Plan 2020-25 to put the environment and sustainability at the heart of what we do. Our vision is to make environmental sustainability an integral part of the University, making positive change at BCU, in Birmingham and beyond.

BCU understands the need to support sustainability across its activities, and made a 'Declaration of Climate Emergency' on 20 September 2019.

Find out more about how we are implementing our Environmental Plan and reducing our environmental impacts across the University.
