Sustainability Group

We are a diverse team of researchers and non-academic staff who are working together to enhance the environmental sustainability of the department and its community of staff, students and partners.

The group was established to:

  • Help enable Lancaster Environment centre as an institution and community to put sustainability into action
  • Engage with the wider University on sustainability
  • Act as a forum and platform for debate on sustainability issues

There are six main areas within its scope:

  • Capital investment and infrastructure projects 
  • Energy use and consumption
  • Catering
  • Pensions
  • Education 
  • Transport
