Underpinning operations

As part of our Sustainability Strategy 2020-26, we're making sure that our business operations take account of social and environmental considerations – and striving to support our local communities in every way we can. We aim to be a showcase for commitment and expertise in sustainability.

What we're doing

By 2026 we will:

  • be innovative in developing ideas for the circular economy through ensuring that every pound generated by ARU and the Students’ Union is increasingly spent in our local communities, including service support
  • ensure all our operations, from procurement to staff, account for our full commitment to sustainability including social and environmental considerations
  • ensure our financial assets are used to support solutions to the climate emergency including working with our pension providers.

Find out more

We're following a series of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to make sure we reach our goals. You'll find full details in our Sustainability Strategy.
