Nottingham named most sustainable university in the UK

17 January 2019

The University of Nottingham has been named as the most sustainable university in the UK by the 2018 UI GreenMetric World University Rankings.

Carbon emissions have reduced by 31% since 2009/10 at Nottingham, whilst the total floor area of buildings has increased. In the future, Nottingham's strategy aims for sustainability at an institution-wide level across a range of operational areas including waste and recycling; energy and water; travel and transport; teaching and learning; research; and corporate governance.

Other sustainable UK universities in the top ten of the global ranking include the University of Oxford (4th), Nottingham Trent University (5th) and Bangor University (8th). The UI GreenMetric uses six indicators to rank the universities: setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation and education.

 I believe my success is due to the great support provided by SI-UK. I was advised the right IELTS courses to attend and they also helped with my visa application. I really want to share with you my positive experience and I would definitely recommend SI-UK to my friends.
