'Greener' LJMU rewarded with 2:1 by People & Planet

Liverpool John Moores University is officially helping forge a greener, more sustainable future!

The university has been confirmed among the better performing universities by People & Planet, the student-led environmental campaign group.

The annual People & Planet League Table ranked us 57th out of 151 higher education institutions in the UK.

It judged LJMU was performing particularly well in waste and recycling management, water usage, ethical investments and seeking alternative energy supplies.

LJMU is expecting to kick on significantly in its sustainability after the launch of our Climate Action Plan 2022 – 2035.

The plan applies the Climate Action Toolkit for the Higher Education Sector, a resource to support staff and students to lower emissions by enhancing carbon awareness, biodiversity, climate and social justice.

The approach seeks to change in:

• Leadership and Governance - Our ambition is to achieve a net zero carbon future by 2035. We will lead by example to communicate, prioritise, fund, and deliver actions to achieve

• Teaching - Our ambition is to embed pro-environmental behaviour to lower our impact. We will engage and equip students and staff to meet sustainable development goals and to raise carbon awareness.

• Research – Our ambition is to mitigate climate change impacts for societal benefit. We will collaborate and share our climate change, sustainability, and low carbon research expertise.

• Community Engagement – Our ambition is to promote positive climate action. We will support our civic partnerships, local businesses, community groups and our students to engage in positive climate action.

• Campus Management – Our ambition is to mitigate our climate impact and enhance our sustainability. We will decarbonise our estate, increase our LJMU Climate Action Plan 2022 4 biodiversity, enhance the sustainability of our procurement supply chain and lower our carbon emissions.
