Sustainability is key to institutional success over the long-term

A sustainable campus estate is essential for enhancing the student, staff and community experience.

Improving energy and resource efficiency is not only good for the environment but can also deliver significant cost savings for institutions. This agenda is increasingly relevant given rising costs, greater regulatory focus on value for money, and growing public intolerance of wasteful, environmentally harmful behaviours by public institutions - the recent rapid rise in public concern about plastics being a good example.

Predicting the direction of regulatory and policy changes - such as future energy and carbon taxes - is challenging but sustainable institutions are better placed to adapt to change. Sustainability regulation can increase access to capital for forward-thinking institutions.
