Sustainability Groups and Committees
Environmental Management Review Group (EMRG)
This group is responsible for reviewing the Environment & Energy Management System (EEMS) and supporting the implementation of the system to ensure it meets the ISO14001 and ISO50001 criteria. In addition, the group is responsible for monitoring compliance with environmental related obligations and ensuring that University procedures meet these statutory and voluntary requirements, as well as the objectives set out in the Policy. Membership includes staff from across the University and from RUSU to represent the student body. The Management Review is reported on to the Environmental Sustainability Committee (ESC), and to the University Executive Board (via ESC).
Environmental Sustainability Committee (ESC)
The ESC is responsible for overseeing the creation and delivery of the University’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy, through the operation of six workstreams; biodiversity & green infrastructure, carbon management, catering commerce & farms, civic & community engagement, education for sustainable development, and waste & resource use. ESC reports to the University Executive Board (UEB). The full terms of reference can be requested by emailing Sustainability at email@example.com. Senior Staff from across the University sit on the committee alongside students representing the student body (see our committees list for full details of committee representatives). Progress against our sustainability objectives/strategy is reported on to the ESC via our annual Environmental Sustainability Report and via the Management Review for our Environmental and Energy Management System (EEMS).
The Estates Committee makes recommendations to the University Executive Board (UEB) on strategic decisions in relation to the use and maintenance of the Estate, as well as matters relating to Environmental and Energy Management, building and grounds maintenance, space management and accommodation. The full terms of reference can be requested by emailing Sustainability Services on firstname.lastname@example.org.
