UCLan is among the greenest universities according to new league tables

UCLan’s green credentials have once again been recognised in a national league table, scoring in the top third of the latest People and Planet Green League.

The university has been rated in the top third nationally, second best in the North West and was awarded a 2:1 degree classification for its high levels of sustainability in the new 2019 People and Planet Green League.

UCLan’s Chief Information and Infrastructure Officer, Michael Ahern, said: “UCLan is constantly striving to improve its environmental performance so it’s great to see the hard work of our students and staff has been recognised in the latest People and Planet Green League.

“The many University-wide initiatives, including our annual Green Week and embedding sustainability into our courses, all play their part in bringing sustainability to the forefront, not only for all individuals but as a major institution as well.”

The league table analysed 13 different areas across 150 UK universities and UCLan’s qualification was reward for its environmental and ethical performance.

The Institution was given 100% ratings for the areas of ‘energy sources’ and ‘environmental auditing and management systems’. The University also scored well for ‘waste and recycling,’ ‘water reduction’ and ‘carbon reduction’.
