Prime employer for women, Nottingham Trent University, is not only a top academic institution, it is also an organisation which truly cares about the planet and forging a sustainable future. The university has scooped 3rd place in the People and Planet University League.

Nottingham Trent University shared its excitement on Instagram, posting: "We are proud to be ranked as one of the UK’s top three green universities in today’s People & Planet University League!"

Nottingham Trent is officially a sustainable university

People & Planet’s University League is the only comprehensive and independent league table of UK universities ranked by environmental and ethical performance. It is compiled annually by the UK’s largest student campaigning network, People & Planet.

The League ranks UK universities on over 100 indicators that test for commitment, policy and performance in sustainable development.

The following elements are considered when it comes to ranking the universities: Environmental Sustainability; Policy and Strategy, Human Resources for Sustainability, Environmental Auditing and Management Systems, Ethical Investment, Carbon Management, Workers' Rights, Sustainable Food, Staff and Student Engagement, Education for Sustainable Development, Energy Sources, Waste and Recycling, Carbon Reduction and Water Reduction.

Overall in the rankings, Nottingham Trent University ranked 3rd. The top 3 universities are steaming ahead with an impressive lead on scores which People & Planet say is down to senior management taking responsibility with vision and commitment to realising the opportunity for planning in university wide sustainable development.

Sian Berry, Author and Campaigner, commented: "The People & Planet University League is important for anyone - staff member or student - who wants to improve their university’s record on green and ethical issues. Information is power and, by providing clear data and clear comparisons between universities, the People & Planet University League is a rich source of evidence, and a vital tool for campaigners and managers alike.”
