Policy and strategy

Sustainability is firmly embedded in the way we do things at LJMU.

Visit our campuses and you will find a wide range of green initiatives, from rainwater harvesting and solar panels to wildflower gardens and green roofs. We get 100% of our electricity from renewable sources, recycle two-thirds of our waste and we have halved our carbon emissions over recent years.

LJMU launched the UK’s first ever BSc (Hons) Climate Change and research by our academic staff is contributing to global understanding of environmental issues and the development of sustainable solutions.

We help hundreds of businesses across the region to create low carbon goods, processes and services, with our innovation and expertise bringing significant environmental and economic benefits.

Working with local schools, we are helping to educate children about the importance of environmental responsibility and understanding the natural world around them.

LJMU is a key partner in the Liverpool City Region’s sustainability strategy, contributing to and shaping local policy-making to help decarbonise the economy and move the city region towards a zero net carbon future.
