AUB is one step closer to establishing a sustainable future and raising awareness of environmental issues at our specialist GOLD institution.

EcoCampus is a flexible phased approach to introducing an Environment Management System. The university achieved Bronze certification in October 2017, Silver in October 2018, and now we have achieved the Gold Award in April 2019.

The Gold award establishes that the institution is operating at the high environmental level that the International Organisation for Standardisation 14001:2015 Standard expects. The Gold award ensured that we operationally delivered rather than documented processes, not just talking-the-talk (so-to-speak) but walking-the-walk.

What has AUB done to lead the way in providing a sustainable campus?

The following facilities and initiatives have been introduced and are being championed by AUB staff, the AUB Students’ Union and students alike across our community;

  • Recycling coffee cup drop off points in all the campus cafe outlets
  • Charity clothes and books drop-off point
  • Electric car included in the university fleet
  • LED lighting across the majority of campus
