What we do
With more than 25,000 students and 230 buildings, Oxford University is a large organisation. We know we have a big impact on our surroundings, and we take this responsibility seriously.
We are committed to creating an environment in which staff, students and visitors can work, travel and study more sustainably.
The University Environmental Sustainability Strategy has set a target to achieve net zero carbon and biodiversity net gain by 2035. Our Environmental Sustainability team plays a key role in implementing the strategy and helps departments reduce their impact through the efficient management of energy, water and waste, procurement and sustainable building design.
Join us on a sustainability journey. Find out more about our programmes, objectives and Oxford’s plans for the future. There are some great ways for you to get involved.
We are proud of the positive environmental difference we already make through our programmes and of the contribution made by staff and students. To achieve more, however, we need your help!
The good news is there are plenty of ways for everyone across the University to become better informed, make more sustainable choices and support others to do the same.
