These 20 Universities Are The Most Sustainable In The UK

Anyone who’s been to a university in the UK over the last few years will have noticed a huge increase in the amount of effort institutions and students’ unions alike are putting into being more sustainable. It’s something that young people in particular care strongly about, and as a result green university rankings are becoming as important to prospective students as any other kind of university ranking.

Recognising this, People and Planet have once again complied their University League table that ranks UK universities by “environmental and ethical performance.” The universities were given a score for how well they performed in things such as waste and recycling, environmental policy, sustainable food and many more.

Here are the 20 universities that came out as the greenest:

1. Nottingham Trent University

Total score: 76.2%
