The University of Northampton Students' Union is committed to ensuring sustainability is embeded in everything we do - as a core value - in all our activities, services and facilities.

To that end we have an Environmental Policy in place to ensure that our ‘green ethics’ are found throughout the heart of the organisation and in all the actions of our Staff and Officers.


What is Sustainability?

Sustainability in the Students’ Union means that we look at ways where we can slow or prevent pollution, conserve natural resources and to lessen the impact that we have on the local environment.

We look to influence others and to develop long term practices that do more to respect the environment, the wellbeing of students and employees, and the prospects of future generations. We consider carefully the impact of our activities and engage in a positive way with the local community to work together towards a more sustainable future.
