Our approach to sustainability

Here at ARU, we believe in making informed decisions, and taking responsibility for the impact of our actions on current and future generations.

And so we've pledged to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of university life: from our formal and informal curriculum, to student initiatives and our research work. We've also woven sustainability into the fabric of our campuses.

The ARU approach

  • Through our Education for Sustainability programme, we encourage our students to be the change, equipping them with the skills and values they need to help create a more sustainable future.
  • We take a distinctive approach to our research – focusing not only on its academic quality, but also on its real-world impact.
  • We strive, through our environmental management system, to continually improve the environmental performance of our campuses.

All these areas are interconnected, and inform every aspect of what we do.
