Construction and refurbishment

The University sets minimum requirements for sustainability to be captured within refurbishment and new-build projects.

The Design Brief for Sustainability is provided as part of Employers Requirements that form part of the standard specification issued to external providers. This has had a positive impact upon the University estate and its operations including our first BREEAM 'Outstanding' building at Wimbledon College of Art.

Travel Plan

Staff and student travel is a significant contributor to 网赌正规网站网址's Scope 3 emissions. We want to try and reduce this by encouraging sustainable transport through the Travel Plan.
