Plymouth Named Greenest University in the UK
23 January 2015
Plymouth University was named the greenest university in the UK this week by the People and Planet Green League. It is the second time the university has topped the table in five years.
David Coslett, the interim chief executive at the university, commented: “Plymouth has been on a journey to explore what sustainability means to us as a university, and it’s one that we’ve now placed at the very core of the way we do things. It is threaded through the way we run our campus and manage our relationship with suppliers and it drives much of our research as we look to tackle some of the most urgent scientific and socio-economic issues of the day. It means a great deal, therefore to return to the top of the People and Planet University League.”
