As part of the Environmental and Sustainable Development strategy, the University of Sunderland is committed to the responsible use of energy throughout its entire business.
The University of Sunderland has a Total Waste Management contract with O'Briens Waste Management. This ensures that as much waste as possible is recycled and that all waste is disposed of through registered carriers.
The Big Turn Off campaign is the University's energy awareness campaign and aims to encourage staff and students to reduce wasted energy, for example, by turning off non-essential electrical equipment and lighting when no longer needed.
As part of the University's behavioural change strategy to reduce our carbon emissions, we have launched a new environmental campaign called 'Everyday Behaviours'.
