Since 2007, People & Planet have asked universities a set of questions about their environmental and ethical commitments and actions. They ask over 100 questions covering 13 sustainability topics; including carbon reduction, student and staff engagement, sustainable food, workers rights, ethical investment and education for sustainability.
In 2015 the criteria and questions changed and reflected not only environmental performance but also employment issues and ethical financial issues.
The University achieved a 2:2 award in the 2017 Green League tables.
Brunel has implemented a successful environmental management system, and has placed greater emphasis on embedding sustainability within the curriculum.
