All University on-campus service vehicles are electric. Staff and students can travel to and for work in more sustainable ways, for example using electric vehicles which can be charged on campus, or by public transport powered by clean energy, or by cycling or walking safely. Sustainable digital solutions and collaborations support all of our work on campus in order to reduce the need to print out documents and to travel to other locations. Emissions associated with our global academic programmes are minimised.
