Policy & Strategy
This University is committed to the systematic incorporation of environmental concern and social responsibility into our decisions and action. To indicate our commitment to our stakeholders, identify the key issues and act as a touchstone for our actions, the University has adopted a number of key policies and strategies.
The University has an Environmental Policy which is updated accordingly on an annual basis. The policy outlines the university’s sustainability objectives and provides a clear commitment to comply with relevant legislation, regulations and other requirements. Progress against the policy is reviewed annually by the Sustainability Advisory Board.
