Case study from University of Edinburgh - Continuous improvement highly commended

Edinburgh’s continuous investment in social responsibility and sustainability measures

Edinburgh’s 21 year old programme of sustainability initiatives has significant positive impact across the University and contributes to sector-wide improvements in performance.

Since its launch in 1990, by the then Principal Sir David Smith, over £20 million has been invested in environmental initiatives. This has contributed to halving the carbon footprints of students’ since 1990.

The University leads by example through a whole-institution approach to creating a living laboratory and embedding commitments to social responsibility and sustainability in our policies, strategies and procedures.
