Briefing on the University’s Environmental Management System

Tue 30 Mar 2021


The University has made a commitment to establish and implement a University-wide Environmental Management System (EMS) in line with the international standard ISO 14001:2015.

We have been working with a consultant, Karen Gallagher, to develop the EMS. Work has been slowed by the Covid-19 pandemic but this year we hope to push forward with establishing the EMS. This will involve, amongst other things, understanding what processes and procedures we already have in place and signposting to these from the EMS; duty of care and compliance training for relevant operational staff; the continuation of internal audits tackling our areas of high risk first; and checking the competency of staff that have a role in the EMS and identifying any gaps in training needs.

Target audience

Senior Leadership Team and relevant senior managers within Estate Division and Safety Office.
