We understand the importance of engaging with our staff, students and the wider community to support our environmental improvement objectives. We also recognise the benefits of sharing best practice and better publicising our aims and achievements. As a specialist, postgraduate research institution we are in a unique position to truly practice what we teach.

Annual Environmental Report

To raise awareness publicly about progress against our University environmental objectives, we publish an annual environmental report.

Green Gown Awards

We are proud to have been shortlisted in various categories of the Green Gown Awards over the past four years. We are particularly pleased to have been awarded 'Highly Commended' recognition for the following entries:

Student Switch Off

We partner with the NUS Student Switch-off to facilitate an annual environmental contest between our halls of residence on the Cranfield Campus. This actively encourages students living here to save energy and segregate waste correctly.

Staff and Student Engagement

The University is lucky to have dedicated Green Champions and Green Teams who are committed to supporting our environmental targets and helping us to engage with our staff and student bodies. We run a series of events throughout the year including ‘Green Week’, ‘Carbon savings campaigns’ ‘Fairtrade Fortnight’ and the ‘Big Cranfield Clearout’.

We are extremely proud to have been awarded the 'Behaviour Change/Employee Engagement Award' at the 2014 Energy Awards in association with ZapCarbon, which is great recognition for the hard work of our staff and students.

Green Week

The University is celebrating ‘Green Week’ between the 14th-18th November 2016. This is an annual event where we celebrate environmental research we do on campus, and run awareness raising campaigns. A timetable of the events we have planned for 2016 Green Week can be viewed here. Internal staff and students should book via the intranet. If you are interested in getting involved in Green Week in the future, please email us using the contact details.
