“We pride ourselves on leading by example and have visited many other organisations to share best practice on creating and embracing a sustainable campus. We are extremely proud to have received this award again and to win the overall category.”

The University has also recently celebrated receiving its fifth Green Flag Award, which is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

The University is among a record-breaking 1,970 UK parks and green spaces and 131 in thirteen other countries around the world, that have received a prestigious Green Flag Award– the mark of a quality park or green space.
