Nottingham Trent University is one of the most sustainable universities in the UK according to the People & Planet University League 2019. This is because our work in sustainability covers all functions: we have an ISO14001 certified Environmental Management System, recognising the quality of one of the greenest estates in the sector including a multi award-winning carbon-negative building; our catering has achieved the prestigious ‘food for life catering’ silver award and we were awarded gold within the LiFE Sustainability Index. NTU has also made major progress in the area of Education for Sustainable Development in recent years by creating NTU's Green Academy which promotes our online Sustainability in Practice Certificate and supports the implementation of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals into all taught courses. The certificate and several other projects of the Green Academy were shortlisted for Green Gown Awards and the leader of the Green Academy awarded EAUC's 'Sustainability Professional of the Year' title in 2016.
We are currently in the process of preparing our new strategy which will embrace sustainability in everything we do and are seeking to appoint an outstanding candidate to the position of ESD Co-ordinator to assist us in this work.
