Managing our environment
Environmental management at the University focuses on the interaction and impact of human activity upon its surroundings and conditions. It can be broken down into three distinct areas:
Environmental Resource Management
Resource management focuses on the reduction and use of natural energy sources including electricity, gas and water.
A means of monitoring and managing the activities of the University so as to prevent harm to others and the surrounding area. As such, it includes the control of radiation, pollution, contamination, noise, vibration, light and hazardous waste.
A means of safeguarding the natural world in which we live by identifying what is already in existence and providing the right circumstances to enable it to flourish and survive. The University support such preservation on and off campus through its programme for bio-diversity.
