While Bangor University is directly responsible for many of the impacts of its operations, it relies on its community of students and staff to contribute significantly to modifying its overall impacts through personal and group actions.
The University actively encourages its students and staff to make long lasting and far-reaching sustainable behaviour changes to not only enable it to make continual sustainable improvements to institutional operations and practices, but also to enable those students and staff to take their new behaviours into all areas of their lives both within and outside the University.
Details of current and previous staff and student campaigns can be found here. Including the staff and student 25 by 25 sustainability campaign, launched in November 2022, and aiming to reduce 25% of carbon emissions by 2025.
The University supports and funds staff and student-led sustainability projects through a number of budgets.
Environmental Awareness and Communication
We have developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) to support our commitment to achieving continual environmental improvement. The EMS is certified to the prestigious ISO14001:2015 environmental standard. A Campus Environmental Performance Team has been established to ensure as much engagement and inclusion as possible.

Welcome Week - Students
All students will attend the compulsory health, safety and environment inductions when they start at the University. In addition, we have produced the following video to explain further about the sustainability and environment work we do and how you can help us.
Induction - New Staff
We take immense pride in the quality of our environment at Bangor University, and we are committed to its protection and enhancement. That means thinking about the impacts of everything we do, and whether, from an environmental perspective, it can be done better. With an estate of over 100 buildings across 346 hectares, as well as a complement of approximately 10,000 students and 2,000 staff, we recognise the implications of our impact on the environment.
All new staff will either attend the compulsory health, safety and environment induction in person or complete the online version. The below link details our Staff Handbook and details on accessing the induction material.
